You are not alone, if you are still enough you will hear a voice or feel it...Not that voice that has been lying to you all these years, but a good and encouraging voice, as you hear it follow and soon you will find not only contentment , but those who are content, and though your life won't (always) be easy , you will be Fulfilled, and not feel empty as you do now..

Hi....I have never been married, so I don't know what you are going through as a soon to be divorcee. That being said, and you may not agree with me, but here goes. You are not alone. You have yourself. Treat yourself well today. Be gentle. I know it is not easy. I have been alone without a boyfriend for years. And it's OK in my mind. If I can't be happy with what I have, then how can I be happy at all? I am grateful for the air I breathe, the job I have, the roof over my head, the good friendships I do have, the support network around me. And if someone does come into my life, great. If not, then that is OK. Take good care of yourself today. I know it is a painful reminder. I feel alone too but I treat myself with kindness and love, because if you can't love yourself , then that is the real tragedy.
