Divorce after 22 years and separated for 6 years

It seems like it was yesterday, but it has been 8 years now and I’m a divorcee.

So many people ask me why was I separated for 6 years. Well my ex was battling mental illness.

We had been together since 9th grade. After all of the horrible things I had been through with him I could not turn my back on him, besides he is the father of my three kids.

Not only did I deal with the guilt of walking away but I had friends and family telling me to just let him go.

God will give you the strength to make it through anything. It’s our job to trust him and lean on HIM.
