    Your post is so true…my husband of 34 years didn’t have a conversation with me-he just went and filed for divorce and told me 3 weeks later. I didn’t want to know, I didn’t like conflict or confrontation and lived like an ostrich with my head in the sand thinking things were okay, not great, but I would have liked to have a conversation and feel like I was worth a discussion…So now as I’m about to turn 59, I’m starting all over which is quite scary but I’m finding my courage and realizing he was the coward and I would never have done that to him. After 8 months on the divorce road I’m finally over the feeling there’s something wrong with me and I am not going to let his actions make me feel unworthy. Each day I am getting more courageous and am trying to figure out what my true purpose is. Therapy, your blog your and book have helped me. Thanks!

    They say timing is everything. Wow! I am still searching for the courage I lost to him so many years ago. I am still searching for the person I used to be. I am not sure of myself or anything anymore and it’s very unsettling.

  3. This so much sounds like my marriage ending, except he didn’t leave a note. Slowly I am standing up. You help, I am grateful.

  4. I think one of the things I am most proud of after surviving a tsunami divorce is the courage I gained from the situation. The ability to hold my head high in situations I would have previously run from still astounds me. I was like you in that I avoided confrontation and thought that it made things better between us. Thank you for this post; it reminds me what I’ve gained.
