I know y’all want the whole story. I honestly wish I could share more, because I know how much it helped me when others shared their stories and struggles. But I can’t go into details on why I got divorced. I can, however, share what a year later looks like and hopefully spread some hope.
Let’s rewind to almost 1 year ago- my world was blown apart. I can’t find a better way to describe it. It absolutely got harder before it got easier. For the first 5 months I was scared, grieving, and completely lost. I had no idea what my future held, and felt that everything was out of sorts. Emotionally, physically, and even financially I was brought to my lowest of lows. This is whats important, and why I preach about surrounding yourself with STRONG and SUPPORTIVE people. My tribe absolutely got me through this. They held me when I didn’t think I could stand. They pushed me when I needed a kick in the ass. And they always let me cry, rant and rave, and get all the emotions out. I will forever be grateful for the love and support they showed me. If anything, I hope this post encourages you to build healthy relationships with good people. With the right support you can make it through anything.
Divorce: A Year Later- Today
Fast-forward to today. Of course I still have bad days. But doesn’t everyone? What I can honestly say is that I am happier, healthier, and stronger. I have more faith in myself. I have bigger dreams. Most of all, I have so much more respect for myself.
So if you’re going through a divorce or a separation, please know my heart hurts for you. Please also know it will get better. Keep fighting, lean on your family and friends, and know that you can do this!
