My Re-Invention Story – Finding Happiness
It took me a few years to have the courage to separate from my husband. The main reason I was staying in my unhappy marriage was for my daughter. I was so worried about what she would go through and how she would handle us not being together but she was actually the one that made me realize that I couldn’t have been more wrong. She said to me one day “Daddy doesn’t make you happy”. I will never forget those words. It was in that moment I realized that it was more damaging for her to be in an unhappy home. What example was I setting for her?
There were quite a few reasons why my husband and I completely grew apart. I lost myself in those years. I decided that I could not continue to waste more precious time and that I deserved to be happy. I have such support from my family and friends and I thank God for them every day. It has been a difficult journey but I would do it all over again. My daughter is now seeing her mother “happy” and I have found myself again.
