After divorce you have a lot of conversations with people , some make you question yourself, it might be the things your ex-husband/wife says to you, it might be things your family says to you, it might be things your friends say.
I have a lot of people over the past two years saying a lot of things, I try to take them in, analyze them, process them and learn from them.
I am going to address these statements or questions, but not all at once, the list is far to long.
THE FIRST STATEMENT:
Your not the person you used to be
I change all the time, I changed when I got married, I changed when I became a Mother, I changed when I became a mother whose daughter was diagnosed with Bi-Polar. I changed when I became a Mother of two, I changed when I became the wife of someone I couldn’t trust on any level, I changed when I became divorced, I changed when I had life threatening health conditions, I changed when I met the love of my life, I changed when the timing didn’t work in our life and I had to let him go. I changed when I became an empty nester, I changed when I met my second husband, I changed when we changed, I changed when we got divorced. I changed when my Father died, I changed when I became a Grandmother , I changed when my Mother got sick.
I AM STILL CHANGING.
I don’t know a life without change, does anyone? Does anyone ever stay the same?
I don’t want to remain the same
I don’t want to stay the same person I was when I was twenty at forty-eight
I don’t want to stop learning
I don’t want to stop growing
