I KNOW YOU!

DIVORCE HAS RIPPED YOUR LIFE APART.

You are angry, resentful and want revenge.

He left you for another woman.

He walked out on you and your kids.

He had been lying to you and cheating on you for years.

He was a complete bastard and you never saw it coming.

And now,

You hate your ex and you hate his skank even more.

You hate even more that your kids are now calling his skank ‘mummy’.

You hate the fact that you still have to see him every other week when you drop the kids off.

You hate that he comes to the school with the skank for all your friends to see

You are out to make life as difficult for him as you can.

You want revenge and you want it real bad.

Your anger is what drives you to get back at him.

Your anger is why you are out drinking and chatting up other guys.

Your anger is what feeds your hatred for this other woman.

She’s the bitch who stole your husband from you.

She’s the reason he left you.

And then ….

In those darkest hours before dawn you remember the good times

You remember the dreams you shared together

You remember the all the wonderful family holidays

You remember the man you now no longer recognise.

As you face the future on your own

You struggle to face each day
You struggle to discipline your kids
You struggle telling people that you are now divorced
You struggle with your life and keeping it all together
You are looking to find love again
You are desperate to fill the void in your heart,
You play on internet dating sites

Nothing seems to help, nothing seems to make it all better.

It isn’t supposed to be this way.
It’s not fair.

And all the while you know ……. DEEP DOWN

You know you played a role in this marriage falling apart.

You know you chose to ignore the signs.

You chose to pretend that everything was OK.

You chose to ignore that little voice, that feeling in your gut.

AND NOW YOU ARE AFRAID

Afraid of life,

Afraid of love

Afraid to trust

Afraid to care and

Afraid to pull down that brick wall that protects you from ever being hurt again!

I KNOW YOU!

Your thoughts, comments, personal story or suggestions are important to me.

With love and gratitude
