Such great advice without knowing all the details. The rug has been pulled out from under her and there's a horrible free fall afterward. I wish her the best.
This sister may benefit by also educating herself about Cluster B personality disorders, especially narcissistic personality disorder. She may be attracting men with these types of disorders. Check out the term "ghosting"...when a person may go no contact. There is lots of information by responsible psychologists and counselors on Youtube about this spectrum of disorders and about the people who attract them.
Use this heartbreak to learn more why this type of man would be attracted to you. Stay strong!
Excellent advice, as usual!
When I left my abusive husband, I still went into shock at being alone. A dear support person helped me to imagine the Savior sitting in the room with me, never leaving me alone.
I recently took a short challenge to pray daily for the Spirit's companionship daily, and used the same technique to imagine His presence with me.
wow...I can see how if suddenly someone says that is it I cant take it anymore...and they leave...and then wont talk that is a scary thing. too many times women are put in this position and they have given their lives to their family and husband and don't have their own identity. I think she is shocked because half of her left. for some reason she knows she cant get that half back. if her husband loved her he wouldn't put her in that position. to me it means he doesn't love her enough to consider the shock she is going through and he just wanted out. if this is his second marriage then maybe he is the type to move along marrying different people. I feel for his children who are thinking what now. my dad cant stay married not even to my real mom. I have seen this kind of behavior before in men who move right along. if something doesn't suit them they feel its okay to do this. they leave in their wake women and children who experience this same kind of shock. she needs to wake up and realize that more than likely he isn't coming back because he took his children with him. I wonder if she has children and if she does she needs to keep herself going to help them get through this. how sad...
My heart goes out to this sister--I can only imagine the suffering she is experiencing. I was so impressed with the excellent advice given, and I hope she will hang on and hope on in applying this inspired counsel.
