The glass was running over, and the stress level had hit its peak. Brian Minges was about to drop the grenade. A small trip to the ice cream store turned into a changing moment in his life, telling his wife that he was leaving her after thirtyâ€“seven years of marriage because he was gay and fell in love with another man. The wailing screams of death rang out in the parking lot. Hiding behind the curtain or in the closet, Brian made the decision to announce to his family the news. With two adult children and one grandson, a different day was about to begin. After accidentally meeting his soulmate in the DFW Airport, Brian could not get him out of his mind. Even after leaving the family for three days to escape with his soulmate, he is convinced by his son to return to the family and try to put the relationship with his wife Lacy together. Needless to say, it was a difficult road to travel. Over the course of the spring and summer, Brian could not get him out of his head, even after a number of family trips in a new motor home along with a family wedding.
When following his soulmate on his LinkedIn page and liking all of his postings, Brian got up enough courage to reach out. It took some time, but the connection worked. When Brian announced to his close coworker that "He" was back, he asked, "Do you still love him?" He said he never stopped. A long road in the changing of life kept Brian going even after loss and a sudden career change. With many mountains to climb, the road was difficult and tiring. Keeping the faith, would a longâ€“term relationship with his soulmate work? Only time will tell.
