YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Dear Ms. M

I am married for 23 years. My husband and I have a comfortable life with each other and our two boys. Our relationship turned into immense misery for our two boys and me when I confided that he is having an affair with his ex-girlfriend. This situation started at the onset of the pandemic. Could it be boredom on his part or from myself negligence? My husband cautioned me to sign the divorce papers once I received them. I cried and kneeled to him; I beg, I did everything for him to stay with us, but my pleas did not touch his once kind heart. What will I do now? I was betrayed and disrespected. Should I beg once more before signing the divorce paper or should I let him be?

Dear Betrayed Wife,

Your love story is not an extraordinary affair. You are not alone! Many were on the same boat as yours, but they rise, leaving a beautiful life with their newfound partners. Perhaps this might help you to move on with your life. Do not insist on a one-way relationship that will surely pull you down. Life is stressful enough. Wake up, smell that newly brewed coffee, take a sip, slow down, inhale, exhale, look straight, and follow the right direction ahead of you. I always say this; there is still light at the end of the tunnel. Let God be your Spotlight.

Love & Light,
Ms. M
