Here is a quotation about divorce from Grammy winner Shania Twain,upon her divorce from husband for 15 years, Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange :

My divorce was like a death – a genuine death of commitment and love. After I got over the shock, I was like, tell me there’s some way we can save this. We can save this, right?

The day after Shania’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, she found out about his long-time affair with her best friend.

I wanted to die. I had a panic attack.

I had been very angry, angry enough to lose control; none of us are above it.

We all have our moments where we reach the optimal point of anger and hurt, where the “inner crazy chick” wants to takeover your sanity. Because that “inner crazy chick” is not having it at all! She will not be played and is ready to express her anger and hurt to the loved one that hurt her. Just remember this too shall pass. And at the end we all want to move forward without any regrets of past actions that could affect our future deserving joys in life. We all get to that point where we want to lose control. While we may want that “inner crazy chick” to break-out at that moment. Whatever satisfaction of throwing your cell phone or high heel shoe at his face…or if your thoughts go much farther to busting windows and slashing tires on his car or well just doing any violent act that resembles the hurt you are feeling …..it will not heal your broken heart. Just give you a moment of satisfaction…just think of your future beyond him. Burry your face in a pillow, get a few good cries out and move on!

“Let Life Flow!” My new credo in life. Worry free of all aspects in life I cannot control and embrace the present moment! Not attempt to scribe the closing of a book, the final act to a play, the conclusion to a thesis….just polarize the now. Eliminate the categorization, definition and tag on me, my family, work, social and dating life. Just be fluid. Continue reading Let Life Flow!

“The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving. I didn’t want to destroy anything or anybody. I just wanted to slip quietly out the back door, without causing any fuss or consequences, and then not stop running until I reached Greenland.”
