I created this site in order to empower people to remove themselves from a bad situation and move toward the life they want. This really applies to all people, but I will be using myself as the prime example.
A little about me:
I once thought I had found my prince and the life I wanted to live. Eleven years, one failed marriage, and a ton of debt later, I realized that I married the frog pretending to be a prince. I was in a terrible situation and felt really miserable, and just plain stuck. I wanted out, but was scared to be on my own. I also didn’t think there was anything out there for me. Because I believed the frog when he told me I would never find another prince. I believed him when he told me that I wasn’t lovable, and wasn’t what anyone would want.
For a while.
Then, what I realized is that he was projecting his own insecurities on to me. I also realized that senior frog was perfectly happy and would never leave the lily pad. So, I had to do what any self saving princess would do. I got the hell out of there. It was really hard, and it took everything I had and a great friend kidnapping me and holding an intervention. That friend also asked me to move in with her and her daughter, in order to get me out of the situation.
I owe her a lot. She got me out, but I kept me out. No one believed that I would stay away. But, I did. I left on New Year’s Day, and I never went back. Ten months later, we were legally divorced. A year later, I sit creating this site.
I won’t be talking too much more about the frog, as he doesn’t deserve the satisfaction of being a topic of conversation. I will, however, talk about my life AFTER divorce. What do you do when the glass slipper breaks? When Happily Ever After turns into a nightmare and you finally wake up. Follow me as I explore a new life and as I create my own Happily Ever After.
