Getting ready to try again

Saturday, May 15, 2010

So, I've been struggling for quite a while now and just not able to get myself together. I say struggling but really I've fallen backwards. I've gained 25 lbs because I just gave up on myself for a while there. I can't keep that up and I feel like I'm ready to put my heart into it again. I've made some changes in my life in hopes that I will be able to become myself again. I know divorce isn't a good thing, but neither is staying in a marriage that just isn't working. We've separated, and I've felt a huge wave of relief since. So, now it's time to remember who I am, and who I want to become. The hard work begins now.

    It can be such a relief just to take one step forward. I'm sorry to hear that things aren't working out with you and your husband, but glad to hear that you are feeling better since you made the decision and took action.

    I hung on in a bad marriage, hoping for the best. But ultimately, I had to leave, and doing so was the best thing I ever did. My life has completely turned around, and I can't even believe I'm the same person. Keep looking forward, and if you need support, come on by my Spark Page - I'm happy to talk if you need it.

    Divorce is hard as you know but you should be commended for taking such a large step towards taking care of you. When me and my ex husband split up it just didn't feel right, I actually felt bad for leaving and almost went back because I felt so strange, like I had cut off my arm. But one step in front of the other and a lot of support from my family and friends made me realize it was better for both of us and my kids. Way to go on realizing your so important and worth it to take care of yourself.

    Hang in there, it sounds cliche but with every passing day you will become stronger!
