Why would I openly share my personal, painful, devastating story to everyone in the world? You may be wondering this. I’ll explain why.
Walking through this journey, I felt many different things. However, one thing in particular always stood out. Alone. I am completely alone. There was no one I could tell. I didn’t have my husband anymore. How could he ever understand or care when he was the one who caused all this hurt. My love and my best friend. I know many times I’ve even said out loud, “I am all alone.” I just wanted one person who could understand and relate to what I was going through. I wanted one other wife to come up to me and say, “I’m going through this too with my husband.” But we don’t do that.
It is my prayer that women coming to this site will know that they are not alone. We can share our stories and pray for one another. We can see God restore our marriages and heal our hurts.
For three years, I lived silently day to day in pain. Even though my husband is repentant and sorry as can be, he will never know this pain. He will never understand. Only the wives who have been here truly know.
So, now is the time for me to openly share my story. And to anyone who comes here hurting and hopeless, please know that you do not walk alone.
