“I want my readers to be able to see that we all have some of the same grit and grace, and they can transform too.”

Writing my story was difficult because I needed to live in the story again to write authentically. I could not tell the divorce part of my story until I got on the other side of it.

I wrote this story in the way that I am going to share my story. I get back inside of my story, share how it felt and how I changed the next chapters in my life’s story.

I want my readers to be able to see that we all have some of the same grit and grace, and they can transform too.

“I have learned that not all things are meant to be healed, sometimes we just need to let them go and just heal ourselves”

I never realized how much I forgot or blocked out my abusive 20 year marriage, and exactly how much a Bipolar, narcissistic asshole I married!  And I say that with love…

I was born a natural healer, always trying to make things better, heal things, fix the pain or wound… I have learned that not all things are meant to be healed, sometimes we just need to let them go and just heal ourselves.

“For me it brought more awareness as to just how much both my daughters mean to me! ”

I have always been able to talk about losing Jaidin, but each time that I do I feel that I learn something new about the grieving/healing process.

For me it brought more awareness as to just how much both my daughters mean to me!

Thank you for allowing me to share.

“I had wanted to know all of what happened for such a long time, then suddenly, I did.”

For me, writing my story in this anthology was complicated. Initially I was writing about another experience, then, that writing opened the last pieces to this regressed memory.

I had wanted to know all of what happened for such a long time, then suddenly, I did.

The story seemed to write itself from there.

Going forward, because my story is now “out there”, I can no longer hide it, or push it aside for a better time to cope and heal.

Thus, I continue to learn about myself, my strengths and limitations, and how to ask for help. This was a difficult undertaking, but I believe the best rewards come when we extend ourselves.

I remain truly grateful for the opportunity.

“I can no longer hide it, or push it aside for a better time to cope and heal.”

It was good to get my story out in the open and share it with people.

During this experience, I met a tonne of great people who had amazing stories of their own, some of which you would have never thought they had gone through.

It was a once in a lifetime experience, it brought up a pile of feelings, some good, and some bad, but I would never change anything that I did during this time!

“I have cried and smiled at the same time writing this story. I have remembered more of what I used to remember.”

At the beginning, I really didn’t know if I wanted to share J.J’s story. I kind of left that part of me behind when I moved to Canada in 2004.

After meeting Ivan (my husband), I have resurfaced this part of my story for him to understand many parts of me and my journey on the path of love. I am no longer needing to push down my feelings and memories of this episode in my life. I have realized, just by talking to my actual life partner that I am who I am now thanks, in part, for what happened to me and J.J.

I have cried and smiled at the same time writing this story. I have remembered more of what I used to remember. I have felt compassion, proudness and appreciation of myself. Hoping to share this story with other women and wishing it will help others going through the loss of a loved one.
