Divorce is not easy on anyone, whether you have kids or don’t have kids, its not easy, its not cheap either. But I survived and so will you. I needed to have a little patience with myself. I was now on my own and alone. I got a do-over as I like to call it.
I am in no way shape or form an expert on how to survive a divorce, what I can tell you is how I survived, what I did, how I found my happiness again. This is my personal experience, a verbage of after affects from an unhappy marriage, when counseling didn’t work and things probably wouldn’t have changed regardless. I do not have kids. In the end it was a mutual breakup and not ‘surprise I’m asking you for a divorce' followed by a 'sign here’ sticker. I can only tell my story and hope that you will find something which provides you comfort, hope and your do-over. Always remember you are A #1, you must do what makes you (and your kids if you have them) happy.
Look for multiple installments of ‘Surviving the Big D” in days to come.
