      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Divorce Sucks

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Kimberly. I've been married 11 years. I got married when I was 19. This has been really hard. I have been every emotion imaginable over the past few months. I don't know how to start a single life... or how to date... I was a house wife most of the 11 years. I was miserable and so depressed that I couldn't see straight. I have had to pick myself up and work my ass off to survive. I have a job I love. I am learning about mtself. I am happier than I have been in years. Still, I feel sad and lonely alot. I know how to survive, but I want to feel wanted again. I just don't know how to keep moving forward. I feel like I have made all this progress, but now I'm stuck at this wall and I don't know how to get around it. Help!

Hi Kimberly, I am Stacey. I was married for 14 years and dated him for 5 years before that. I left him, but I miss so many things. It is very normal to feel sad, lonely, depressed, hopeless, etc. off and on for quite a while. It's been 1 1/2 years and I am still grieving...that's why I joined this site. I rebounded but now think the new relationship is a mistake. I feel like a failure, that I will never find true love again, that somehow I am less of a person because of the divorce. I think for you and I, only time and lots of it will change this from feeling bad to feeling good again. Hugs and good wishes to you, Kimberly. You are not alone.

Divorced is a really stressful event. No matter how prepared a person can be, it disrupts our emotional, and even our physical well being. Today the sanctity of the marriage bond has diminished greatly, and many have been influenced by this. The outside influences can have a great effect. I have found thru experience that the principles that are in the bible have proved to be a difference maker when it comes to developing an relationship, as well as maintaining one. It encourages both Husband and wife to have deep love, and respect for one another. The attached link discusses the many issues that couples face, and effective answers.
