I created this blog, even selfishly, to heal my own wounds as I walk the path of healing after twenty-eight years of marriage and three adult children, but also to share advice and stories and help the millions of people who find themselves unexpectedly on this overloaded path of healing. Life has a way of leading us down a road full of bumps and bruises and unexplained paths that we would never have imagined. And on this dusty road, we somehow stray from the path, make mistakes, give up parts of ourselves, and finally find ourselves in what we call life. Until the day the unimaginable happens; the one person you always thought could protect you from the storm becomes the storm itself. It leaves you traumatized and desperate to discover who you are without your other half, for better or for worse. No one gets married thinking it will end in divorce. It may have been your decision to leave but either way, divorce is hard. Maybe you saw it coming, or maybe you got hit in the stomach and had to take a deep breath to survive the moment. Find your way after the divorce. In fact, most of us think I never will, that we love each other, that we can get through anything.
