Entry Four (Reflective): One of the most important lessons I learned in life stems from my relationship with Elizabeth. I learned that no matter how bad things are at home between a man and a wife, turning to someone else for comfort is never tolerable. I know I was lonely and have said ElizabethĂs personality could ˘freeze beer÷, but I wish we could have learned to communicate better with each other. I know some of it was ElizabethĂs illness, the way it made her bitter and cold and not like when we first met. I know some of it was my fault as well. I got to seeing Abigail all the time and she seemed partial to me. I should never have touched her and I did so I have nobody to blame but myself. Like I told the court, ˘God knows how blacks my sins are. It is enough!÷ (Miller 1995, 32). Despite having sinned, I learned a very important lesson from getting involved with Abigail. I learned on some level I still truly love Elizabeth and maybe that provides us with some hope for our relationship. I have tried to see her from a different perspective, especially since she ran to me in court and I lifted her in my arms triumphantly against the tyranny there. I believe that having to go through my trials and tribulations because of interacting with Abigail, I learned a much deeper appreciation for myself and for Elizabeth. This has made me more content and fulfilled in thinking about our relationship than I have been for some time.
