Learning to love myself while going through a divorce !

Discussion in 'Share Your Story' started by Janet Woodham, Feb 25, 2017.

  1. I am going through a divorce, and was thinking what is wrong with me. Why can't I found someone that would love me. And not be controlling and verbally abusive . So I took a step back, and looked at myself. I realized I didn't love myself! I allowed this man to talk and treat me anyway he wanted. I joined a group of friends that first did a 30 day burpee challenge. Then they started a mental challenge. I have to say the burpee challenge was easier than the mental challenge. There were days I cried. We would watch a motivational video and than write our take away. It brought me to a level of awareness I never knew. To the point I left my husband! I decided I deserve more than this small abusive life. I have created a list of things I want to do. Things I was not allowed to do, because my husband said I couldn't. So sunday is my daughters 19 birthday. I took her for a mani ,pedi I haven't had one in 4 years. So I scratched that off my list. I started shopping at publix. I was not allowed to shop there before. Even though they are tiny things. It is amazing how better you feel!

  2. No matter how small your actions may feel- they all deserve to be celebrated; especially when you're going through a tough time.
    You'll come out on the other side stronger and wiser than you've ever been. <3
