Since my life has been completely turned upside down the last 365 days, I thought this would be a good day to recap, because today is the day it all started, one year ago. Today was the day, last year, that my ex began sleeping with someone else. (When your significant other tells you, “I’m not happy, I want to be alone for a while,” this usually means they are sleeping with someone else. Just an FYI.)
I was three months from delivering our child.
So in these last 365 days I’ve incurred a tremendous Lifetime movie-esque scar, I had an amazing child, moved out on my own, learned how to retain attorneys and advocate for myself because attorneys can really only do so much, gained a lot of responsibility at work, started a blog with a longtime friend, and gained the credentialing to begin my own firm with in my career specialty. It’s been a busy one, laced with a lot of tears and self-growth.
Because I’ve been through so much, I wanted to encourage those of you who might be going through something tough to keep going- you will get through it. It may seem like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, but it is there. If you give up, you’ll never reach your goal. No matter how bad life can get, how tragic the circumstances, you can find a way to go over, under, around, or through whatever is in your path.
How do I know this? I’m proof.
