This will be my last post on this blog. I haven’t posted in a while and kept telling myself that I was just taking the summer off and I would get back to it, but the truth is that the blog has served its purpose. Almost two years ago I started this blog to process the pain of divorce, to share the joys and challenges of single motherhood, and to connect with other people going through the same experiences. I feel I have accomplished all these things. Though there is still residual heartbreak from everything that has happened, most of me is healed now. I don’t need the daily therapy of writing things down. I don’t even think of myself as a “divorced person” or a “single mother” anymore, even though I am still both of those things. Life feels pretty normal again, and for the most part, I am happy.
This blog has been my greatest form of therapy in difficult times. I’m grateful for all the friends and strangers who reached out with kind words and for the times people called me out when I was being selfish. I’m glad I was able to share some personal experiences and I hope that in doing so I helped some people not feel so alone.
Probably the most important lesson I have learned over these past two years is that time heals pain even when it seems like the wounds will never heal. Our worst moments in life are often followed by our best and that has certainly been true for me.
This will be the end of this particular blog, but I am working on other writing projects and will probably resurface somewhere else on the web. Thank you to everyone who was a part of my journey.
