How to survive divorce – you find yourself

  By YOU partner Denise Dominguez

My goal for this blog is to reach and help as many women as possible. My story is real and it is raw. It has all of the ingredients for a Lifetime movie. Not only was there a divorce but there is mental illness, suicide attempts, anger, fighting, children, family, and a string of emotions along the way.

You see I never wanted a divorce so I did everything in my power to keep my family together but that only damaged it even more. When I think about what I did, I know at the time I thought I was doing the right thing but I didn’t look into the future of how my kids would be effected by the tornado they were living in.

Now the moving on part; leaving him, leaving the only state we ever lived in, simply starting all over again; physically, mentally and emotionally. It was and still is the BEST decision I ever made but everything in the past came with a cost.

I love my life now, I am finally truly happy! All of my past experiences are lessons that I have learned and that have lead me to here….right here where I am supposed to be, helping you!

My new journey is landing me here on this blog connecting with women who have been through divorce pain and want so desperately to feel happy again, to feel light and free again. I’m not going to sugar coat things here…it takes time. Here’s the good news thought during that time you discover yourself again and learn new things and grow beyond imagine. What seemed to be your life at one time will turn into a chapter in your book. The first time I ever heard that I thought…YOU’RE CRAZY LADY!!! How could this turmoil of a life I’m living one day be just a chapter? But it was, and I can say this because I’ve been there. Things do get better, things do change and your life evolves into something that you don’t recognize anymore but in a good way. The past really is the past. There was a time (not too long ago) that I could not even sit and write about what had happen to me, it was too painful and being a private person I felt like I shouldn’t share this crazy train wreck of a story that was once my life! I didn’t think people reading it would even understand, but I’ve learned that the more you put yourself out there and be vulnerable the more people respond and connect to you.

Here’s what I’ve learned since leaving my 22 year marriage and living on my own for the first time since I was a teenager. I am GREAT! I am strong and I am tough! I’ve also learned that loving me is the most important thing I can do. I am worthy of all great things and helping other women gives me great satisfaction. So, love yourself and know that your story has a meaning and with the right tools you will heal and be a better you!
