A Message From a Divorced Woman!
2. Please stop saying "God will repay you" because I didn't lose anything!
3. Please stop asking "If I regret getting married" because if I never did, I wouldn't have my baby girl!
4. Please stop telling me "you are so strong, how did you do it?" I have been brought down, broken and hurt but I survived like everyone else, not because I am a super hero but because simply that's what time does... It heals!
5. Please understand that it doesn't bother me when you speak about your kids, husband or your family... what I been through doesn't make me bitter and definitely doesn't make me envious!
6. When I go to a wedding and the bride enters, please don't look at me with sympathy, and let me enjoy the wedding without throwing those pitiful looks at me as if I lost an arm!
7. When the couple starts to dance and I tear up, please don't hold my hand or hug me because I am not remembering my wedding day & mourning, I am simply happy for the couple and I wish they have better luck than mine!
8. Please stop asking me "How are you?" or "Are you hanging in there?" & when I say I'm fine, I mean that I am fine, please don't start acting like a psychiatrist!
9. Please stop asking me "what I will do next? "Or "how will I manage being a single Mum?"... I am not a fortuneteller, I live my life day by day!
10. Please stop setting me up with divorced guys, widowers, or men that don't have a job... My situation didn't make me lower my standards or expectations!
11. NO, I won't be getting married again just to have a man under my roof cause "This is Life" or "You need a man" so please stop with that advice!
12. YES, I still believe in falling hopelessly in love, living a fairytale and happily ever after and NO I don't hate men now!
13. Please stop asking me "Do you think someone will accept you with a baby?" I don't know but it's the way it is and honestly I don't care!
14. When I see you and your spouse somewhere don't assume that now I am a home wrecker & I want to steal your husband away!
15. Please don't ask me "When will you get married again?", I swear to god when I am asked that question all I am thinking, "Hmmm I am getting married in 3 days, 8 hours and 25 minutes, sorry you aren't invited!!!!
16. Please don't be shocked when I say "My next wedding", YES I will have another wedding, are you kidding? How many girls actually get to have 2 weddings in a life time... I call myself lucky!
17. Please don't tell me "Don't wear a white dress to your next wedding, It's the color of purity"... What the hell does that mean; I am somehow not pure now?
18. To the entire weirdo's out there in our society, please don't expect that I am an easy woman now, I am still a good girl & my daddy raised me right!
19. Please don't assume that I am weak and sad, while I may be superior and happy just like any other human being!
20. Please stop asking me "Do you hate your Ex?" My Ex isn't my favorite person but NO, I don't hate him and certainly I don't wish him dead! I have been married to my college best friend of 10 years, I had a fairytale come true but sadly it didn't work out, as simple as that!
