1 Year After My Husband Left

July 24, 2015

This time one year ago my perfect, family orientated world came crashing down around me.

I had just put my little girl to bed on a 'normal' day and I asked my husband if he was okay as he seemed short tempered that day... The conversation that followed was the start of the end of our marriage.

1 year on and I now have an 'ex-husband' or maybe one day a 'first husband'... I'm not sure which sounds worse to me, they both make me feel a bit ill when I think of them.

I now put 'single' in front of my title of 'mum' although I don't let that define me.

I have a few failed 'relationships' and dates behind me too. I am currently single at the moment and happy it is that way.

Maddie and I are closer than ever, I have amazing family and friends around me and although I have days where everything feels so difficult - like I'm wading through mud - I know that I am lucky and I am happy overall.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this post was... I guess I wanted to mark the date somehow.

  1. Life is sometimes a big pile of poo but Jen & I know how strong you can be and you have come a long way since last year x

  2. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason in life and the right things will happen at the right time. Que sera, sera! In the mean time, look back only to see how far you've come - look forward to the future and be grateful for the present. Sending love, good vibes and happiness your way! x

  3. As someone reading this from an "outside" perspective, I think you've handled it with a lot of poise and strength! I'm wishing you lots of happy and beautiful moments in the future, Rach :) xx

  4. To add a different perspective I must say that I don't think everything happens for a reason but I do believe that personal growth is the best revenge.

  5. Rach, thanks for sharing your experience with us and I wish you better times ahead. Your honesty Is appreciated by this reader, I think it's inspiring. I'm glad you chose to mark the day with a post, being isolated almost always makes me feel worse when something awful is going on.
