To find peace, you have to be willing to lose connection with the people, places, and things that create all the noise in your life.
Peace of mind doesn’t just come to us; it comes from our efforts towards creating it. Peace of mind comes from letting go of those hurtful pasts, people that hurt us that we don’t seem to get over.
I only knew peace after I divorced my cheating husband; it all started when we were still courting, I couldn’t give in to his demands and he resulted to cheating.
It broke me apart, and I didn’t know what to do. I loved him so much and I thought he would change.
I never got over it, but what can I do. I told my parents and they asked me not to give up on him.
I don’t know if anyone understands what I was going through, the feeling of being cheated on, and never to be enough for your partner.
There are many times I cried myself to sleep merely by the thought of it; a lot of things changed about me. I stopped associating with people and worse still I developed trust issues.
After our wedding, my husband never stopped cheating, my mental health was at risk, and I knew if I continued with such marriage I won’t ever heal or get better.
We got divorced, and it was easier as we had no kids. I left that environment as everything reminded me of him, and all the damage he did to me.
I went abroad, and I started my therapy sessions and I’m getting better. My happiness and peace of mind seems to be suppressing everything that ever went wrong in my life.
I finally had my peace of mind, after many years of being traumatized.
