2 Valuable lessons that I've learned during my 2nd divorce.
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.
We always want a reason. We always want an explanation. We always want to be able to look at the situation and say 'this is why this happened.' I think that sometimes, there just isn't a reason. There is just evil.
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.
