Inside the Front Cover
Did you ever do anything stupid? I mean profoundly STUPID – like marrying a man in spite of your friends and loved ones telling you not to – even while knowing facts about him that should have sent you running the other direction? This is what I did, heedless of all warning signals. While still in the newlywed stage, the relationship ended abruptly and painfully, turning my world upside down. In the devastating aftermath of suffering and humiliation, I vowed I would never find myself in that miserable situation again. Initially, I wanted to expose my husband as a sex addict and pedophile while painting me as the wronged heroine. After all, my ex-husband now resides in prison. Doesn’t that say something about what a jerk he was and what a victim I had been?
Then the awful truth hit me between the eyes – I made the choices that got me into this mess. With that realization, I discovered an incredible gift – this situation offered an opportunity to grow that I would never get any other way. This book tells my story – every embarrassing detail as well as each triumph I discovered along the way. Excavating my early years and exploring the beliefs I formed about myself in childhood gave me powerful insights. While processing all this, I shifted from seeing myself as a victim to realizing my ability to create a life full of meaning and purpose.
