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: 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.
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
