Where does one begin, after a long marriage is over? It's daunting for people to be out on their own after so many years of marriage.
As the holidays fast approach, I ponder over my past, but my thoughts seem to project into the future. Where am I going?
I wonder if others are feeling the same way. I'm excited about tomorrow, excited about the future, yet feeling lost as to how to get there.
So much of my life has changed over the past several years, as I have gone through the ups and downs of divorce, thrust into living a life alone.
I miss the noises of everyday life that surrounded me; now I hear nothing but silence. But in this silence, I have begun to discover who I am, little by little.
Where I was once scared to surface to find the emptiness, now I look forward to a new day. Not that I don’t have my ups and downs…well I certainly do but tomorrow is not as dark as it once was.
So if you are at the beginning of feeling the loss of a relationship, know that the pain you are feeling is one that will help you to grow.
As strange as it sounds, it is something we must endure because if we didn’t feel the pain... just who and what kind of person are we?
It is because of this pain, we know we have loved. Personally, looking back, I would rather be the one who has suffered, the one who has felt rather than be the one who hasn’t, as this would be a cold life indeed. As I know now, I am the one who will grow to be a better person as I know the true meaning and understanding of love.
Love: It is such a simple word with such complexities and one we all wish to feel and have.
