Why do some memories stick in your head and others seem to go away and never come back? I remember the moment I felt trust & love again. It had been over 5 years since my divorce and had not met anyone I could trust let alone fall in love with. I had dated and always felt insecure about the fact that I was divorced. My parents had been married for over 40 plus years and in my mind I had failed and felt others would look down upon me. My husband (boyfriend at the time) and I were out to dinner talking about relationships and I asked him if it bothered him that I was married before. David had never been married before and without hesitation he immediately answered of course not. He said Sherry your ex-husband did me a favor, if he wasn’t such a fabulous stand up guy we would have never met. Inside I was doing the happy dance thinking finally someone thinks I am fabulous!
Learning to trust someone can be a difficult process. I think its important to listen to your intuition and not hold negative feelings for what happened in your past. Be open to let your happy come back into your life. Finding someone who I could truly trust really expedited the healing process for me. I could finally believe in myself again. I think back now and realize life had another plan for me and today I honestly can say I feel like I have only been married once. Luckily no kids were involved so there is no contact necessary between me and my ex-husband.
I am grateful for the experiences I remember to help guide me in the future. Today I am always working on trusting & improving myself. What memories do you remember like it was yesterday?
