DIVORCE FREEDOM OF THE SELF
Your courage gives me strength, your loneliness holds me in my darkest hour, and your commitment to truth helps me to keep going. Thank you for your courage and making it possible to follow the path to freedom of the self.
My name is Lea Rose, married for ten years, divorced for four and remarried for one. This is my story, my tale to you dear friend. As Counsellor, Civil Celebrant and mother of two that now live in a blended family. I offer these pages to you, I offer these pages to myself as together we travel the dark and rocky path to truth. It was you that kept me alive in my darkest hours. Alone with my children, alone with my thoughts, alone with my pain. I thought of you sole parents and wondered how you are coping, how are your children, do you feel like me, what are your secrets. So this is my story, my tale to you…from marriage divorce to marriage.
My friends would say I've upgraded, younger husband, nicer town and a better house. Yes that's true...but it was the pain and anger that drove me forward towards a new life. And in truth, the grief still battles with my mind, as I find my new footing. I look at the inner compus, nothing is recognisable. I have made it, that I know, and now in this haven, I lick my wounds and reflect.
