"I found [LYH] mid-divorce from a referral.
Leaving that a**hole [high-school sweetheart] after 24 years together was the hardest, most necessary, thing to do - girl, so I thought.
Once we finally separated the hard part actually came.
I was like, ok who am I?
I spent so much of my life as Mrs._, I seemed to have lost myself. I didn't want to go to work, I felt like I couldn't reach out to any of our (all-mutual) friends, I didn't trust anyone and I basically had no idea what I was going to do with my life.
The back and forth cycle between my ex and I was just making things worse and the delay of the divorce made me feel really stuck in limbo.
[LYH] is straight to the point... I feel like this is the stuff I should have learned about myself BEFORE I GOT MARRIED.
I now have renewed confidence, hope and strength.
I feel like I can move forward and (I never thought this would happen, but) with an open heart.
I saved myself (and a sh*tload on therapy)!"
Sometimes it's US who is cheating ourselves... Break ups aren't always with boys... say Sayonara to self-shaming, sabotage and confusion when you lift your heart.
