I, myself have been married and divorced from a 15 year commitment to a man whom physically, mentally, emotionally abused me. I have 6 children with him, the years I've been with him I've been believing things will get better but I wasn't in healthy marriage. What mattered to me was him being there with us spiritually and financially supportive but eventually this individual has decided to leave us for another women. At the time of my separation, it was VERY tough I personally did not know how to deal with my emotions but I dealt with it on my own. It was like he left me at a dead end street UGH!!!!!!.... All my children were all heart broken and sadden by their father leaving us. We really missed him a lot and wishing he will return, regardless of how he had hurt us millions of times I forgave him because I cared a lot about him and he didn't have a place to go to in the area, his family is originally from up north far away from here. So finally I made up my mind where I had to ask myself if all this separation is worth walking away from or Do I want to continue to live in depression and forgive him??? NO!!!! I MADE myself strong each day and moved on with my children and got help with spiritual prayers with NAC ceremonies and left it in creator's hands and moved on with my life. It was a tough ordeal but I had to do what I had to do by my children...took me 10 years to finally realize that this individual wasn't worth missing anymore regardless that his the father of my children..im very happy and proud of myself that I can say I moved on with my children. YES!! like they say "there's a light at the end of the tunnel"...I love my family if it wasn't for my children, I wouldn't have be where I am now... thank you JESUS!!..AMEN!!
