About two years ago, I thought my life was falling apart. After the death of one of my parents, I found out my husband was having an affair and he walked out on my son and me at the weakest moment in my life. I sat in my house with my son who was a toddler, and didn’t understand what I did to deserve to lose my father and the man I trusted most for almost 5 years, my husband. I experienced some of the darkest days of my life. I would wake up and wish it was night-time already so I could go to sleep. My son was my strength and who motivated me to make it through each day.
There is nothing that can express what a woman feels when your marriage is broken due to infidelity. It tears a woman apart inside and out. After being cheated on, I felt like I was not good enough anybody. I wondered if anybody would want me again. Most of all my self-confidence went down the drain.
Immediately after my divorce, I made some stupid choices and met some of the wrong types of guys. One day I prayed to God, that I was not going to look for a guy to fill the void that I felt. I wanted to feel like I was wanted and was not going to search for it anymore. About 6 months later, I met a man who was “different” than any other man I had met. He appeared out of the blue (we had a mutual friend on Facebook). We began by talking and getting to know each other. He treated me like a lady from day one. He wasn’t all about sex. He actually cared and showed interest in who I was. We moved extremely slow in our relationship at first. It was refreshing. He was the first and only guy I decided to introduce my son to. I never thought I would have met the man of my dreams the way I did, but like the saying goes “you meet your soul mate when you are not looking!” A year later, we were married on the beautiful beach in Florida in a romantic and sweet ceremony!
Many people may say that we got married quickly, but I truly feel that it was the perfect time. When you know, you just know. He had all of the qualities that I wanted in a man and role model for my son. It took time for me to trust him. I didn’t trust any man. He proved his trust to me. He is an open book and works hard to make sure I don’t have any doubts!
Have I completely gotten over any doubts about my new relationship? No, I do have self-esteem issues still and I still have doubts that my husband will walk out on me. I don’t have these doubts regularly, BUT it does cross my mind. It is only normal that these feelings may come up after being through such a hurtful relationship before. When I have these doubts, I go to my husband and talk to him. He reassures how much he loves me, things I am beautiful, and will never leave.
As I write this, I get emotional because women that go through this is happening to often and it is one of the most hurtful things to experience. But I want women to know that it will be okay. In time, you will make it through and your prince charming will come into your life when you least expect it. Enjoy life and figure out who you are and what you want. You will heal in time and your life will be brighter than ever! I never knew I could love again and love deeper than before!
