“Divorce is probably as painful as death”
“Divorce is like a death but with intent”
I know how you feel in the beginning. The emotional pain is debilitating. This pain can become physical which it did with me. It has been nearly two years since I was blindsided by the “man” that promised to love me for better or for worse. He just walked out. The pain is beginning to ease. I have my good and my bad days. I don’t miss him at all now that I have learned who he truly is. I do miss our family unit.
My suggestions for you, if you are beginning this journey or even if you are years down this path, is to hold onto your faith, your friends, and the family members that love you. You will get stronger.

Get out and do something fun this weekend. Believe me forcing yourself out, in the beginning, does help. My daughter and I are going to a wine tasting tonight. I can’t wait.
