A personal journey through heartbreak and healing and the road to rediscovering ‘me’. Part of this passage is to share my feelings, actions and perhaps lessons along the way.
Why Devastating? The meaning of the word is defined as:
‘Causing Severe Shock, Distress or Grief’
which has been quoted by many friends regarding my sudden life change as ‘devastating’.
This is exactly what I felt when my husband suddenly ended our marriage. I will use other synonyms in my blogs (I image they might include shattering, overwhelming and betrayed) but I hope that I will transition to informal synonyms during my future journey. It gives me some hope that the dictionary describes alternate words as:
‘Dazzling’, ‘Beautiful’, ‘Captivating’, ‘Enchanting’
I know the pain will lessen with time and I will carry the scars, both physically and emotionally, into the future. I am surrounded by beautiful caring people, both new acquaintances and old friends that give me the strength to look forward to a new future.
