I’m sorry for your pain and sadness. I hope that coming here to the forum will be a welcome relief and a good source of support for you. We all understand what it’s like to feel the weight of depression, and having people to talk to is a really helpful thing.
I don’t know if you’re
open to the idea of counseling, but I will tell you from a personal standpoint that it has been a lifesaver for me. Perhaps you would consider talking to your doctor, and seeing if he/she could recommend someone to you. Divorce is really hard….I’ve been through it very recently myself….and I know that my self-esteem really took a beating through all of it. One thing I would like to suggest to you is some positive self-talk…..it makes me sad to see you speak in a self-defeating way, and you deserve to have lots of love and support right now, especially from yourself. You sound like a really intelligent, caring person, and I’m sure you have a wealth of wonderful qualities that we have yet to discover.
Please come back and post with us some more as you feel up to it. The members here are compassionate people who are great with words of advice and support. Take good care of yourself, and let us know how things go.
