To all my ladies out there....
It’s brutal and ugly and messy on your soul. The hurt, the disappointment, the anger and shame, seems overwhelming at times.
When the love is gone, it’s hard to remember if there was any love at all.
But you go on.
You lean into the pain, you learn from it, so it doesn’t come back to haunt you.
And as much as you think he’s a putz,
the kids still think he’s awesome.
The truth is; They love you both.
That becomes the platform of honor you hold for them. So you all come out of the storm in one piece.
What this means is taking the high road.
Bitting your tongue when it wants to lash out. (As often as possible)
You learn to walk through the fire with your head held high.
Is it easy? Hell NO!
It takes strength and courage.
A whole lot of courage. The kind of strength courage you may not even know you possess. Yet.
When it hurts the most,
Breathe a lot deeper.
Eat a lot better.
Run a lot faster.
Sweat a lot more.
In order to cry a little less.
But then the moment comes where you start letting go of the dark past and begin to focus on your bright future.
And you finally realize you are more than enough.
For all my friends who have just entered the battle; know that you are not alone.
We are in this together sisters!
Be it different parts of the journey. Beginning, middle or end...
I see you. I feel you. I am you.
Write down your fears. Release the beast.
When you say it out loud, it’s a lot less scary.
There is no shame in the divorce game.
Unfortunately, No one wins.
My hope is that somewhere along the way, you get to discover how truly great you are.
Peace be with you warrior woman.
