About to go through a divorce due to my husband of 5 years cheating and leaving me. It’s been very hard as all I tried to do was work it out with him because we have a small child together (under 2 years old). Has anyone on here ever gone through a divorce and later on met the love of their life and lived happily ever after? Terrified I won’t find that as I thought my soon to be ex was the love of my life (unfortunately this is new and he still is the love of my life – but don’t want him back). I just want some affirmation that it will just run into me one day and I want to look back and be like “wow, I can’t believe I was so upset over him now that I have my loving faithful partner.”
I’ve been separated for 8 years and have not found Mr Right however I have had some good relationships and still believe I will meet “the one” when the time is right. Tbh, I just want to focus on my kids and getting my life in order atm. I have no doubt you’ll meet someone.
Of course! Humans are not really meant to partner with the same person for life. It sounds like you and your current partner have grown in different directions. You’ll likely find someone much better for this stage of your life.
I understand how you feel and an uncertain future can be very unsettling. It can also be empowering because as they say, the best is yet to come. But this is so raw for you so it’s hard to process that better things will come your way. You’ve had your future as it seemed completely ripped out from underneath you. Don’t look too far ahead. Try and take it one day at a time. Be gentle on yourself and enjoy your little one. Take this time alone to heal and don’t rush into finding a new partner. Casual fun is fine for a confidence boost, but dating can also be heartbreaking if you attach easily. And your broken heart doesn’t need any more of the rejection and disappointment dating sometimes brings.
I’ve been divorced 4 years from a cheating husband also. I still have bouts of sadness and loneliness but I’ve also met some great men that have helped with my healing. And there is plenty of time to find my forever man. Trust that it will happen when it’s meant to.
