  1. I’m really glad you wrote this. It is so true and so important.

    Hey there Stilllearning2b,
    Therapy, Medication, Time. I agree. But I’d ad to the list: FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Oh yes, there are times when you feel like, and might need to, distance yourself from the people who care most about you… (and their going to find it hard, and worry even more) but in the end it’s a great blessing to have your F&F to fall back onto.

    Great post. I learned some things. Great pic at the top too.
    And yes, divorce is exhausting … and devastating in so many ways.

    I am so glad to be 2+ years along from the day it was final. Whew!

    By no coincidence, having spent two years recovering…and rebuilding myself, and making personal changes in myself that contributed to my divorce, I have recently begun a relationship that is progressing well, is balanced, a lot of fun, and with a stable person who has good boundaries, excellent commonalities with me, etc.

    Every post helps me progress. Thank you Lisa!

  4. Wow you ladies are so inspiring! Besides having feelings of worthlessness after a long hard marriage and becoming too self-sufficient, I realized that I also have a lot of Pride that stops me from asking for help. Pride is such a dangerous trait to have and I knew it was a trait that I definitely had to give up. When you look at it from the other side, so many people are pleased to help in so many ways…..why should I take that pleasure away from them. Thank you again for a great post. Tovah

    • You are so right about pride being a trait that can get in the way of asking for and accepting help. To receive help takes a certain humility and vulnerability that is not always easy.
