Woman Wildly Happy She Got Divorced (Dear Abby Column)

Woman Wildly Happy She Got Divorced (Dear Abby Column)

There’s no point in being married if the guy you are married to is inept, self-absorbed, selfish, and/or abusive. Here’s another example of that:

Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am writing to share a positive experience I hope will help others. It’s what a relief divorce can be.

I was miserable married to my husband. I used to hear people on the radio talk about their beloved husband or wife, and my heart would twist with regret that I never felt that way.

I spent years almost numb because I was lying to myself about my marriage. I spent years reading books on how to improve our relationship, years going to workshops.

Nothing changed.

I was always walking on eggshells waiting for him to yell.

I didn’t trust my husband to be kind to me, and frankly, I don’t think he ever loved me. After much therapy and a lot of very hard work, I finally got out of the relationship.

I thank God every day for my freedom.

Sometimes I’m so happy being by myself reading a book or making my own plans that I feel I’m going to burst with joy.

My days are precious to me now. For me, divorce has been an awakening.— PATRICIA IN MASSACHUSETTS
