My dirty little separation secret...

I didn't tell my parents about my separation for two years.

I kept it hidden from my friends.

It was my dirty secret...


My shame.


One of the most prominent emotions I had while separating was shame.


I was ashamed of my situation. I was ashamed of what I've done and of what I've become.


I felt shame that my family was now broken, I felt shame that I chose the wrong person.


I felt like I failed in life.


This is not true.


30% of marriages end in divorce, so separation is normal.


hmm...I was just normal after all.


Not the prefect partner.


Not the perfect guy.


Not the perfect anything.


I was me.


I needed to be ok with being just that. Me.


Shame goes out quickly when I release.


When I communicate.


When I forgive myself.


Can you do that?
