Going through a divorce at the age of 50 is terrifying. The shocking part of the whole experience was, I wasn't ready for the pain, I wasn't prepared for the financial responsibility and I certainly wasn't ready for the overwhelming sensations of anger that would wash over me.
I had to take some time to reflect, self-evaluate, and redefine who I was as a mature woman, suddenly on my own. It was not an easy journey but I did it.
The first step of my survival was relying heavily on my faith in God. I knew that his words that were written in the Bible said he would never leave me nor forsake me. I had to learn how to trust in that concept.
The next thing I had to get over was my shame, This was not my first time going through a divorce, so I knew the process. The same came from going down this path again, I needed to understand, what was going on inside me, which allowed me to be drawn to men that would hit, leave, and psychologically abuse.
Once I began to look at myself and stop pointing the finger at others, things in my life changed. I share my journey with you because I believe that the shame of divorce keeps us from seeking the help we need to recover.
