Blindsided by the divorce.
While barely waking up and rolling over in bed, you feel disoriented when you suddenly reach over and touch the cold, empty spot beside you. As you flutter your eyes open, you remember.
He’s not there.
Losing your partner to divorce was not how it was supposed to be. Unrelentingly, you beat yourself up with all the happy memories, playing them repeatedly as if you might see the moment things went wrong. You think, “Perhaps there was a moment I could go back and change.”
Your chest crumbles in this heartbreak. The kids and the life you all shared begin fading into the distance. There are moments when it feels like the ground will give way and swallow you whole.
Grief comes next.
Family and friends kindly encourage you to move past the divorce. They tell you it will all be okay, and you will move past this. Unfortunately, that encouragement only shuts you down.
How can you explain the shame, anger, and sadness to anyone? Losing a marriage is a loss. You are in deep grief, and they don’t get it.
Navigating each day is daunting enough – making it seem impossible to think about the future. It is scary to think about what life will look like on the other side for you and the kids.
You ask yourself, “How will I get through this?”
