I’ve been there.
It happened to me in 2005. And I never saw it coming. Completely blindsided. I was devastated and so completely in denial that our marriage was over that I didn’t tell a soul for three weeks. I just kept waiting for him to come back. I believed him when he said he “just needed time.” He did need time; time away from me to establish a new life.
Once I received a letter asking for a divorce, I finally began to accept what was happening. I opened up and began to share with others. And through that sharing process, I began to finally move through the stages of grief and toward a place of healing.
It took about six months of separation for me to actually THANK my husband for leaving me. I didn’t resent him. I didn’t hate him. I was GRATEFUL for what he did for us. Breaking us apart was a BRAVE move.
I understood that we BOTH played a role in that relationship. If I wanted to move forward and GROW, I would need to work on me. I needed to learn why I got myself into that relationship in the first place and why I felt so little of myself that I refused to leave.
And the result of that gratitude and that acceptance has been a journey of personal growth and transformation that led me into the arms of a new man; a man so superbly suited to me I feel as if I conjured him up somehow.
But I needed to LOVE MYSELF before I found him. He would have walked right past me otherwise.
There is so much in store for you.
