what do others do?... Here it is again... The weekend... After 10 years... Of the aftermath of divorce... I often lay on the couch... Miss my kids... Miss my family... Cry... Feel sorry for myself... Don't accomplish what I should be.... Then, I rally the next day in the 11th hour... Stay up too late... Get my work done... And finally sleep....it's rough.... And it's always hard seeing pics on social media... Seeing old friends still married and moving to retirement... Happy... Futures seemingly certain. Breaks my heart... As my future is uncertain and hard... I cry out to GOD... I DO HAVE JOY... I TEACH WONDERFUL KIDS... God always provides... HE is always there... But the loneliness is tough...

Hi Jen,

Be strong Jen. It's ok to be honest about your feelings of loneliness, sadness fear and doubts. Just don't let those feelings turn ugly into self pity and feelings of failure. Please hang your present and your future on The Lord. It's been 4 years for me since my wife left. I can say for sure that God works all things for good to those who love Him. It doesn't mean everyday makes sense but on those days my faith has to take over and believe it to be true whether I see it or not. I have had the most productive and tearful bible reading and prayer time during those days of desperation. God has caused me to rely on Him for everything: my money, bills, my time, my car repairs, my kids' needs, being a good parent etc. and I think that's a pretty good place to be. Be strong Jen.
Thank you very much, :).
