I THOUGHT DIVORCE WAS A DIRTY WORD UNTIL I BECAME A 2 TIME DIVORCEE-AESHA MUKHERJEE


Funny how words can have such powerful meanings and associations. I experienced this first hand as a divorcee. The first time I went through a divorce I was soooooooo fu@kn scared. I felt like I had failed and I was doing something so wrong at that time.

I felt as if I had let everyone down and even felt selfish. I felt that I was letting my parents down, I felt that I was letting my children down and even to some extent I felt as if I was letting God down. Divorce was such a dirty word.

So now imagine, I have to go through it a second time. Woooahhhhhh. That is terrifying. Being divorced once before already, felt like I had more at stake the second time round. I had more to prove. So when my second marriage broke down it was really scary. All the feelings I felt when I went through it the first time came flooding in. Fear, failure and disappointment x 100. What does this mean for me? How does this define me and my relationship to marriage?

Well, once I went through the necessary actions and emotions of what had happened I was able to sit with myself and see that I was fine, I was actually doing great, even noticed my fear had totally disappeared. The remarkable thing is I actually felt much more empowered. I realised my fear and the meaning I gave to the word divorce was my own doing.

So, once I realised this I started to redefine the word and the experience of divorce according to the way I wanted to see it and experience it.

❤️Divorce means choosing myself and not settling and sacrificing my own life for the sake of a marriage

❤️Divorce means even though you do your best and try your best things sometimes do not work out and that’s ok

❤️Divorce means I have had amazing relationships that have taught me great lessons to carry forward in new relationships

❤️Divorce means I am stronger and more resilient than I ever thought

❤️Divorce really means whatever meaning you give to it.
