I am in the middle of divorcing my alcoholic husband. I joined this site to have support when I needed it, but I have to say, I have spent all my time until this point trying to help others. I think that is a good sign for me. I know in my heart that I am fighting for 2 young lives (my children) that have no choice in the matter, and no one else who will stand strong like a lion to save them for abuse and pain. My husband in incapable of making good choices for anyone, coming from a family where he learned all that he knows now, which is how to live a life for himself. I have done everything that I can do to save our marriage, and I can leave now with a clear conscious, able to live a life a freedom I've never known being married to my husband, and more so, his addiction. I know that I have a challenge in front of me, to get my babies out of state, and be home with my family again, and support us. But I know that I will get there. I know that I am fighting the good fight, not for me, but for my babies. Even more so, I have no anger or resentment for my husband, I can only pray that he finds a way to love himself, and recover. But I will not have me or my children pay any longer for his choices. I just want to wish hope for all those who suffer. Without hope, there is nothing to fight for, to live for, to want, to give. Today's thoughts create your future. YOU/ME/WE are in charge of our own lives, and our states of happiness. Choose love, even if you stand alone.
God Bless You All.
