I never want anyone else to feel like I did - ashamed, embarrassed, self-conscious because of the bruises...What someone feels is ok to do to you - harm you physically - is not okay and not your fault. I wish I could have absorbed this earlier than when I finally did. A man that physically attacks a women is not a man - not a normal human being - it's not ok and they are showing how weak THEY are NOT how weak you are. I've decided to take a second shot at exposing my most raw emotions about something that I would never want another woman to ever go through.
You have to find it within yourself to function during a divorce. Some days it's harder than others but you have to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
And that's when I realized just who he really is. I will never get an apology for the hurt and harm he caused. If I expect this then I will be forever angry because it's something that he can't mentally do.
Divorce can bring people back into your life that you forgot were in the wings.
More advice is just to do what's right from the beginning. It will cost A LOT less and end A LOT sooner, if you can put aside your emotion, pride and greed and seek out a resolution instead of causing more issues each week.
