I was worried about my children being angry with me for forsaking the wonderful aspects of our life in the northeast. Goodbye soccer life. Goodbye holiday family traditions. Goodbye comfort of our quaint hometown community. In this new unsympathetic and strange infernal land, I feared each single-mom struggle might lead them to resent me. We lived in survival mode for quite some time.
But I was determined to create a life for us where I didn’t have to choose between peace and values and basically everything else. A life where the anger would wash away and leave us with only Love. And I held onto that glimmer of hope that had gotten us through so much already.
Major transformations don’t happen overnight. I continued prioritizing our spirituality, being active and physically strong, and exploring new places for us to commune with nature. That was a significant bonding time for us. I worked through grief and shame, faced my insecurities, learned lots of lessons sometimes more than once, worked through forgiveness and at last little by little the anger began to fade.
Each year our situation got better. Each year our living arrangements improved. Each year I earned more money than the last. And each year my children grew stronger, wiser and more capable, too. Their bond is tight. They excelled in school. They established great friendships. They forged new paths for their future successes.
And you can triumph over a toxic relationship, too. You can find emotional stability. You can sort through your anger no matter how deep it runs. You can rebuild your confidence and walk with a little swag again. Your peace and happiness live right on the other side of this difficult time and the only way to it is to power through the mess.
The vision of your life bright and abundant with love and laughter in your new normal is within your reach. Your success on the healing journey is waiting for you to take the first step.
They say time heals all wounds, but that is only true if you consciously make good use of your time. Time alone is not a healing agent. It takes action, and it takes the right action to reach your goal of sustained peace and happiness in your home. Those things don’t come by accident.
