Divorce makes people scared of committing to another relationship, scared of falling in love again. How often have you heard, “I don’t know if I’ll be able to trust someone else again?” Yet, the real trust issue might not be about other people.
Being with someone else was less about learning to trust someone else and more learning to trust myself and my instincts about that person, trusting that I know what is right for myself, that if it turned out he was manipulative, then I could get out and I could leave and it would be OK. My life would go on. ~ IronSpineSally
IronSpineSally was with her husband for twelve years, married for four years. Her husband was in the military and his deployments gave her the opportunity to take more responsibility for the household and made her realize she was far more capable than she’d given herself credit for. Divorce proved to be a kick in the pants for IronSpineSally and led to a completely different and happier life.
I love IronSpineSally’s story and encourage you to read all the segments. Here’s a who woman found the courage to leave a deeply troubled marriage, met her soulmate and in the process blossomed into the confident, caring, capable woman she was always meant to be.
