I used to think that my marriage was for life – in other words, one and done. But if you’ve been reading here, you know I’m divorced so my one and done wasn’t meant to be. Now I’ve got to develop a Plan B.
While it’s been a few years since my former husband and I separated and divorced, I had a lot of inner work to do to get over the pain and wounded woman syndrome. I’ve shared some of it here on the blog in hopes that I could connect with others who were experiencing similar issues. I think that we need friends when we are going through so much pain. So I want to thank you all for being my friends.
I know a lot of my friends’ parents who are one and done and I really admire them. I admire anyone who is married for a long period of time because it requires commitment, compromise and love to not give up on the vows taken so long ago. I would not have left my former husband either, but now years down the road, I realize that I owe him a thank you for his courage in leaving when he said I don’t want to do this anymore.
Plan B isn’t established though. I’m working on it as I work on me. I didn’t want to start something when I wasn’t healed. I was never one of those people who jumped into a relationship without taking it slowly. Maybe I should have been like those who immediately start dating after divorce, but that’s not me.
And if nothing more, I have to be me – Authentically me!
So here’s my question to you:
Do you believe in only one love in your lifetime? Only one marriage? Only one soul connection or soulmate? I would love to hear what you’d like to share!
