Going through divorce, it’s not uncommon to feel angry with your ex and it’s easy to recognize that’s what you’re feeling. What’s harder to recognize is being angry with yourself:
I had twenty-five years to get over. It took me a while to, not really stop being angry at my ex for what he had done but rather to get over being angry at myself for having allowed it. ~ Maryan
Maryan had been married for over twenty years when she and her husband divorced. Maryan waited five years after her divorce before she started dating, in part because she had a teenage daughter at home but mainly because she had no interest in men.
