“Never be the
one to tell her
she can’t, because she can and
will, with or without you.” ~ j. iron word
This reminded me of when I left my now ex-husband, with 3 kiddos uncertain of what I’d do but knew I didn’t want to be in a miserable relationship any more. I had a new job offer then yet the area I was moving to was/is super expensive. So I did the next best thing. I stayed with my parents. During this time I broke several times. But I had family to pick me back up. I had friends who constantly worried and loved on the boys and I. At some point I decided to go back to school and get my Masters. I will say the first year was the hardest. I had some of the darkest moments. But just when I thought I couldn’t... I did. I remember my ex told me you won’t do it alone. And then it clicked. I have no other choice but to do better for my sons. This year I finished my Masters, got offered a new job... I’m on my way. Next goal is to travel twice a year with my son’s and buy a home. And maybe dare to date.
I can and I will have everything I ever dreamed. If it doesn’t come to fruition... damnit you’ll know I at least tried.
