Divorce Isn’t Failure
I’ll start off by saying I will never get into personal details about my marriage or divorce. It is absolutely no one’s business nor do I care for unsolicited advice or opinions.
BUT I need to share this. Because I’m not alone. You’re not alone.
If you have gone through a divorce, contemplating divorce, or in the process of divorce, repeat after me: DIVORCE ISN’T FAILURE.
It takes courage to walk away from something you thought would be forever.
It takes courage to be honest about your feelings.
It takes courage to acknowledge your own flaws and toxicity.
It takes courage to be alone and battle the demons of loneliness.
It takes courage to admit you’re unhappy.
It takes courage to face the unknown.
It takes courage to feel scared.
And it’s brave as fuck to stop accepting less than what you deserve.
Divorce is far from failure, it’s a sign of strength. It’s knowing when to walk away from something that is no longer serving its purpose in a healthy, loving way.
Divorce isn’t a time to mend on the past but a time for self-reflection. You see, no one is perfect. We all struggle. We all fuck up sometimes. We all make mistakes. We all have changes of heart. But we’re all human.
Divorce is teaching me to be strong, to be a better person, and parent. Divorce is teaching me to be patient but to persevere for what I want and deserve. Divorce is growth and a chance to restart living life your way.
So if you’re on this divorce journey with me, remember you are stronger than you think. And there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I PROMISE, it might be dimmed but it’s there.
Love, Amy ♥
