my husband of 27 years walked out the family home 5 weeks ago, out the blue, I am still in shock, I don’t know where to start, he refuses any contact with me and blocked me every way possible he as contacted my sister a few times saying it is over, our twin sons are grown up and no longer at home. I am 56 years, I am so lost and heartbroken, the marriage as been on the rocks for 4 years now but I was not expecting this to happen where do i begin thank you for listening .
Hi there, i understand very well as i have been in the same position few years back and i am 55. It has been disbelief and denial at the beginning, talking to friends and family helped a lot . I couldn’t believe that was happening to me as i really thought it was for ever . After came the angry phase and resentment, and that helped me coping too. I trough myself into my job , filling my days to the brim, so at night i was so tired i crashed in bed and didn’t have time to think. Time is a good healer, and 3 yeats later i am still standing, alone with 2 teenagers , and i feel i can pat myself on the back thinking how much I have achieved by myself. I am not totally healed yet, but i feel free, to be just me ..my advice would be to believe in yourself, after so long you get use to relying to your partner emotionally financially etc..but you can do it , with some adjustments , we are stronger than we think ..
