  1. Happy holidays and many, many more. 😉

  2. That was a wonderful post! I feel the same about my online “family”. They have seen me rant and rave (sometimes about frivolous things), they have read me writing about a failing marriage and ultimate divorce, and they have helped immensely in those dark moments when I thought I really had gone around the bend. Although, I do not comment on your blog very often, and you do not know me well, I read it almost daily. I have found great hope in your experience. Thank you for sharing it! I hope your Christmas is merry, and that your New Year is safe and happy 🙂

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for a wonderful post. I need you guys there are no support groups in my area and unless you have gone through divorce no one understands. If he would of died I would of gotten a ton of support but a divorce makes people avoid me like the plague. God Bless us everyone.

    Happy new year. A small note on your post, I totally agree to the online community belongingness feeling, I would like to add to that that the people in my online life come from different parts of the world and I don’t need to know their gender, age, religion nor political affiliations for me to relate in some ways to their stories. I wish the whole world can become that one day, a big open online community.

    You were the first person in this online community to reach out and tell me it was going to be okay. I didn’t believe you at the time, and still struggle sometimes, but it’s getting better. I’m still in survival mode, but I know that I have support that I can reach out to. Because of blogging, I found you. Because you had the courage to write your story, I found a book by Vikki Stark that Amazon recommended when I bought your book. Because I took that recommendation, I found a great support group on FaceBook and we created a private group called the Healing Circle. I have not had the time to blog lately (new job), but I am forever grateful for you and this community of support! Congratulations on your new marriage. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    • Oh, Meg, I am so happy for you:) What great news and I love the idea of the support group! You brought a huge grin to my face this morning. Best to you and keep up the great work! Lisa
      P.S. It actually won’t be okay – it will be better than okay:)

    I love the communities of “imaginary friends” that have developed through blogging and Face Book. We support each other, grieve with each other, encourage and laugh with each other. And we grow. – Fawn
