Customer Question

Hello there, been separated for 2 months now. Married for 11 years, together for 15. We have three young children together. She is 47 and I'm 41. I was an unsupportive, lazy and complacent, took her for granted and was stupid enough to have always believed her words that she'd always love me or that I would have to be the one to end our relationship. I had my own fears and was often sheltered by her. I am progressing well internally now, bettering myself and wanting nothing but my family back. I had fears that she was emotionally betraying me and when I asked about a particular person, she avoided the question four times, this eventually lead her to tell me that she could not do 'us' again. We still can't face each other when I visit the kids, I don't want to hurt her with my presence as I think I repulse her. I sometimes text her, nothing relationship wise just chit chat or something about the children, she never initiates or asks how I am. She doesnt wear her wedding ring. Help pleas
