I recently received your book as a gift from some friends that attended the pepperdine lectures. My divorce was final in march. In June I would have been married 27 years. I have three girls,22,18 and 16 years old. The oldest got married last summer in the middle of all this(needless to say it shattered her belief in marriage), my middle just graduated from high school and my youngest has high functioning autism.Also, last summer my father had a stroke about 6 weeks before the wedding and is still recovering. An emotional roller coaster.
Your book said the exact same things I have been saying to myself, my thoughts and my feelings seemed to be talking back to me.
It has been the most difficult thing in my life. So many emotions. I think I am doing well, then like today, I see him at his girlfriends house at a Memorial Day pool party. My youngest is with him for this holiday and I have all those emotions flood back again.
how long does it take? I really don’t know if I ever want to date or marry again. I was in this for life and it kicked me in the teeth.
I am thankful I have my education. I just finished my master’s and plan to get my Ed.S. in curriculum and instruction. I teach kindergarten. Funny, how (D) waited till I had a job, then left. I guess I can thank him for that.
Thank you for your book and words of encouragement. would love to hear you speak sometime.
