Oh yes, I remember back when I was going through my divorce. There was a lot of bitterness, anger, and yes, sadness. Not fun!
You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them…but still move on without them.
– Mandy Hale
This quote is so true, and I believe that even though it may take time to acknowledge this, peace within can happen once you learn to let go of all the hurt and pain.
I had spent countless hours preparing papers for court, changing lawyers because I felt like I wasn’t getting anything accomplished. And in the end, I stood up in court representing myself in a three day trial. In the end, I felt that I was the only one who could really say what I needed to say and get my point across, as I fought for my children.
I found the courage to say what I had to say and do what I had to do. It wasn’t easy. And even today, my girls going back and forth, it’s not easy. I think more so now, especially in their teenage years.
None of it was easy.It never is easy.For anyone.
When you are fighting for or about your children, remember. It’s not about the parents, and it’s NOT about power or control!
It’s about what’s right for the children.It’s about creating a safe environment for them, and guiding them through this society we live in today.
It’s not their fault that their parents’ relationship didn’t work out. It’s not their fault that life isn’t as always as it seems.
In any marriage or relationship, there are going to be disagreements, arguments, feelings of anger. But there’s the other side too – the opposite of hatred. There’s love, compassion, empathy, and kindness.
Marriage – Relationship – whatever it is where children are involved.It’s not always going to be peachy – leave the children out of it and be adults!!
Create the stability children need.Create the consistency.Create the routine in their daily lives.
Set rules.Set boundaries.
Help them grow and nourish into passionate, loving, kind, young adults! Be active in their lives, and always let them know that you are there for them!
LOVE them, whether as a couple or apart.That’s how we can teach our children the beauty of love. ❤️
Here, I want to share my video for those who haven’t had a chance to watch it….my interview in Cyprus with Thekla Petridou, where I share my story and encourage others to keep pushing forward.
Hope you all have a beautiful Sunday! ❤️
