Oh THIS YEAR. This year has been a doozy. It was January when my ex and I decided to start the divorce process. I’ve learned a lot over the past 10 months and wanted to share because I know so many of my fellow mamas have been through this too. If you’re going through a divorce right now or have in the past, I hope these words find you.
1. You will be OK. Whatever circumstances led to your divorce please, please know this. You will be OK in the end. I know that at times this seems absolutely impossible. I know that it can feel like your entire life is falling apart. Like it takes a giant amount of energy to survive a single day. Like it can feel hard to breathe in the rare moments you find yourself alone with your thoughts. But as you grieve and process what you’re going through, there will come a day that things feel a little easier. There will be a day when you think about your divorce just a little less. While the days often feel like time has slowed down, time is exactly what you need. Keep faith that this will get better, little by little.
