Can't get over my ex-husband leaving for another woman?!
by Heart-broken Girl
I was 6 months pregnant when my ex-husband left me for another woman. It has been the most painful year and half of my life.
I can’t get over the hurt and betrayal. I re-live scenes from my past life over and over again in my mind, everyday, and I cry alone everyday. Everyone expects me to be over it but I can’t seem to and I don’t know why...
I don’t love my ex husband anymore but the betrayal is too painful to cope with. I try to be positive and grateful for my son and his health and mine but the pain runs too deep.
I am so sick of running into old friends and acquaintances because I seem to be explaining why I am a single mother of a baby on a daily basis. I am so sick of hearing "well something must have been broken in the marriage if he was willing to abandon you and your baby for another woman". But nothing was broken, everything was perfect in my eyes.
We had a perfect little life and we planned to have a baby but in the blink of an eye, another woman stole my whole world. How do I take this pain away that runs through-and-through me?? How do I stop replaying my past in my mind??
I don't want to drink alcohol or do illegal drugs because I am the sole parent of my beautiful son.
I don't want to go to counseling because I am afraid they will say I am not mentally stable to take care of my son and I don't want to lose him.
I don't want to take prescription anti-depressants because I don't want any of the crazy side affects.
How do I become content with my life and get over it??
Thank you for reading my story.
