Right after my divorce in 2007 I felt free but lost at the same time. I’ve been with my husband at the time since I was 14 years old and now at the age of 24 I was getting a divorce.
I don’t remember taking time to grieve the divorce, I went straight into another relationship trying to find someone to help replace that empty feeling that I was feeling inside.
I remember a year after my divorce waking up asking myself how in the hell did I end up here? I begin to notice how I hated my life, life at that time felt all alone and for the first time in my life I had to deal with being all alone with myself, something that I wasn’t use to.
I didn’t know who Taquila was because I’ve lost myself in my husband. I did everything that he liked to do, all his friends became my friends, my life revolved completely around my husband but now I’m all alone with no one to talk to or help me through this divorce. All of my friends left when I got a divorce, I guess they took his side and didn’t want to be friends with me anymore.
I remember the first apartment I’ve moved to after my husband and I separated, I was there for two weeks and end up getting robbed at my doorway. Fear sat in real quick after that incident but I still had to be strong for my son sake who was only 2 years old at the time.
There were times when I will wake up feeling sad, mad and angry inside but I would just hold everything in. Rejection and failure was right after the corner waiting to remind me of how I failed as a wife and that no other man would ever love men. All of this begin to change for me once I picked up the book Rebuilding: When Your Relationship Ends. This book gave me so much clarity around the different emotions I was experiencing and how to deal with the guilt and rejection of the marriage. It also helped me to understand why I was feeling the way that I was feeling when it pertain to all of my missing friends that was all of a sudden no-longer there with me.
To sum this book up, it really helped and showed me how to rebuild my life after my divorce. I highly recommend this book if you are currently going through or have experience a divorce and need help putting the pieces back together after the breakup, this book will show you how.
