Come back in time with me...
...to 7 years ago when I was facing the last year of mom’s life while I was also separating from my daughter’s father.
Have you ever gone through A time
where challenges were thrown at you
from every direction?
The grief was immense. It was so overbearing I couldn’t tell what I was grieving at times. My heart ached so deeply I could feel it all the way into my back. There were days I would lay on the floor and sob uncontrollably.
I remember laying in bed, feeling like I wanted to die. I even contemplated checking myself into a place. I just wanted a break. It was too much. I was in my first year of Chinese Medical School, while learning how to be a part time single parent. It was a lot. My whole foundation was taken out from underneath me.
A few days after my mom passed away, our divorce was finalized. At first, it was hard for me to adjust as my former husband entered into a new relationship, but I ultimately did too. When I look back now, I see it all settled perfectly. In the midst of all the chaos and challenges of that time, something better was occurring for all of us. It just didn't always feel that way when we were in the thick of it.
