Making The Right Decision For You Is Never Wrong
These last few years were filled with heartache and hurt and I wouldn't change it for the world. This photo was taken in the summer of 2016 when my heart & head caught up with my soul and knew that my marriage was over. It wasn't an easy decision but I know it was the right one for me.
It was one of the hardest conclusions to come to and to surrender to and there were some who disagreed with my decision and so I lost them too.
What I've come to realize is that the decisions you make for yourself that are best for you aren't always going to be received well. You may piss some people off, they may abandon you when you needed them most and none of that is your fault or your business. That's their work to do and it has nothing to do with you. If they want to go, let them! They weren't really your friends, to begin with.
Doing what's best for you isn't always ideal for others but you don't have to live with them, you have to live with yourself and your soul knows best. My soul knew that the marriage I was in wasn't serving me anymore and that I had given my all and at the end of the day I had to walk away.
What those people who disagreed didn't know is that the image below is how I felt the majority of my marriage, I just tried to see the good in everything and everyone so they didn't see the hurt, they didn't know the loneliness + isolation, they didn't experience the emotional abuse and sadness that I felt on a far to regular basis.
They didn't know that I was walking on eggshells on the daily never knowing which person I was gonna get when he'd come home from work.
They didn't know what my experience was and no one can truly know what yours is either. Know that if its right for your soul, you're doing it right!
💖 Please remember my friend... Making a decision that's right for you is never wrong and there is happiness on the other side of the pain you may be feeling.
I'm finding my joy again and so can you.
