Encouraging Words From Your Peers

Excerpts from Our Community to You

I am not sure how long this has been going on for you but I promise you it will get better.  There are days and times where it seems to go on and on.  Then somehow the fog will start to gradually clear and things will get better and improve so hold on to that truth.  It truly is a roller coaster of ups and downs, emotions and everything.  You are very strong and courageous and I know you can do this.  As for karma for the ex, I feel God will take care of it all in God's time, not ours, as much as we wish it to.  I pray and put my trust in God and leave it all in God's hands since He knows best.  Hopefully you can do some fun things just for you very soon.  I will be praying for you  (read more)

Women grieve, men replace.  We open ourselves, our wombs; give them everything and they just seem to move on seamlessly.  It’s a punch in the stomach that doesn't ever seem to go away and even more hurtful when you see you’re in law family so accepting.  Don't close your heart though; you deserve to be happy too.  Not all men are the same (so they tell me) and everyone wants to give and receive love.  Your time will come and you can only hope he will get his just deserts in the end.  Being able to live with ourselves knowing we did our best and living with integrity is huge … (read more)

It is time for you to live.  After so many years, I am pushing through so much emotional abuse, and the horrible thing is I did not realize how to interpret it was abuse.  That is why you might find yourself wanting to go back and forth.  You might need therapy just to help you come to a healthy place in your life again.  You are worth it.  Don't worry about your children.  Take care of yourself and time will heal, and reveal.  The only thing you can do is to be mom.  If your children are displaying some of the same selfish ways as your husband, just pray and be a mom but set boundaries so you can get healthy.  Please take care of yourself and never see him again.  Don't email or talk to him.  Don't text him.  Pray for daily strength to resist bad treatment from entering your life.  I am praying for your strength … (continue reading)

I know your pain.  Mine has just begun.  Only two weeks and I am seeing him in a different light.  The man I thought in knew and loved with everything I have is a liar and a cheater.  But you have to like you and stop worrying about him. You are better than that; you are worth more than that.  You have to stop felling sorry for yourself and worrying about him.  He sounds like a jerk.  I know my journey has just begun but I would rather be by myself than have to be with a man like that.  I am scared to death about my future but only I can take control of it.  The only reason you feel the way you do is because you allow it.  He is still controlling you and you are letting it happen.  My mother told me the other day there is nothing wrong with being alone, nothing!  Love yourself, love life, and only you can change it!  You will be ok everybody has a purpose you just haven't looked deep enough.  It's there you just have to let it out  (read more)

I am sorry for your pain, but applaud you for your strength.  It takes courage to move on and know there is a light for you at the end of this long tunnel.  You are enduring some of life's greatest stresses all at the same time.  You will feel like a rock when this is over and done with.  Yes the OW can have him.  She has seen up close and personal what he does to his woman when he tires of her.  If she is not smart enough to see that will be her some day then she deserves what she gets … (read more)
