Divorce Sucks, Then You Live...

Divorce sucks, then you live.  Meaning there is no such thing as an "easy" divorce.  All of them are hard and heart-wrenching, no matter the level of love or hate you may still have.  The good news is, that there is life after divorce, it's called, "holy crap, I'm a single parent, now what".  That my friends, is almost tougher than divorce.

I am blogging over at amazing single Mama, Mutant Supermodel's blog today.  She is doing a single parent series by other single parent bloggers to share experiences and give single parents a safe place to fall.

My post over there is probably the most vulnerable I have ever been about my divorce and the reasons behind it.  It has been something I haven't really shared on my blog, but I think it was about time my experience needed a voice.  So if you want all the nitty gritty dirt, click over.

Thanks for being patient in my blogging absence, I could say I've been saving the world or something, but I've actually just been eating a cupcake.

Now, go read, would ya!

  1. Just read your post on Mutant Supermodel. I am truly in awe of your resilience. Although I know it's hard, I think it's important that women share the reality of their divorce/single parenting stories, because doing so makes other people feel less alone. I will think about your story the rest of the day. You're a rock star!

    1. Thanks, Pauline. I agree and I think that is exactly what MS is doing with her series...brilliant. We all have our own stories, our own pain, when we can identify with someone's pain we feel less alone.

    1. Girl, stupid, what???? It was fate that I just happened to meet the one other blogger in the contest that thought it was a joke....pimping for a pink button, so worth it. You're my bff/twin, I'll give you a kidney unless I need one of yours.

    1. Well thanks, but I just do what I feel like I need to do, most of us would. I couldn't have made it without really supportive friends, family and God.
