I created this blog, even selfishly, to heal my own wounds after twenty-eight years of marriage and three adult children, but also as a place where I can share advice and stories and support millions of people who suddenly find themselves on this path of frequent healing. There is a way in life to take us on a journey full of bumps and bruises and unexplained paths that we never thought we would have to travel. And on that dusty journey, we lose our way, make mistakes, leave a part of ourselves and get lost in what we call life. Until the day when the unthinkable happens, the only person who ever thought they could protect themselves from the storm is the storm itself. It leaves us traumatized and confused and tries to figure out who we are without the other half, for better or for worse. No one gets married thinking it ends in a divorce. Maybe it was your decision to leave, but the divorce is still complicated. Maybe you saw it coming, or maybe you just had to breathe to get over it. To find your way out of the divorce. In fact, most of us think I’ll never do it, that we love each other, that we can go through anything.
