I hope you will be very kind to yourself during this painful time. Don't make the mistake of overthinking what you might have done, or not done, to save your marriage. I promise you---Life WILL get better and you CAN find happiness again. It will take time, but the day will come when you will feel joy again. When you pray, try and hold the truth in your heart of how much Heavenly Father loves you. He still has a plan for your happiness and will strengthen and guide you.

I understand the hurt, the pain, the tears, because I to experienced a divorce 13 years ago myself. I also know and don’t doubt it for a moment that our Father in Heaven is fully aware and is watching over each and every one of us every day. Please, give yourself some time to heal, especially do it for yourself so that you can be there for your family in time. Look yourself in the mirror every and remind yourself that you are loved by our Father in Heaven and you are His daughter. I promise you that in time you will have peace in your heart. Please do not beat yourself up over the “what if’s or should have done this” your Heavenly Father needs you now more than ever. It’s ok to have your tears and moments. Remember to strive to be positive even when life throws you challenges or difficulties, You can do this remain true to yourself and trust and have faith in the Lord. Honor your covenants love yourself so that you can be there for your children. The best and most precious gift that I learned and received from my Heavenly Father is the gift of being forgiving. I promise you will be alright and you will come to know this and who you truly are. Live the gospel and read and study your scriptures every day so that the Lord can speak to your heart and mind.

Great answer! Been there, done that, bought the t shirt. 30 yrs on, it's still sad. But the waves eventually calm down and some days I don't think of him... Amazing! When you are abandoned it's quite different to you both deciding to call it quits. The pain is unbelievable. Widowhood looks so much better.. Than this!?!! Whatever this is suppose to now be. As much as you love him, you can't bring him back or make him change his mind. Just start pretending to be happy and enjoying life, and eventually miracles will happen and you won't have to pretend anymore. You will be where you need to be. Whenever you see him, act happy even if it's the last thing you want to do... Screaming and crying at him, or being 'quiet' will not make him see what he's thrown away. May not bring him back.. But will make him see you don't need him to be happy and have joy. Even if it's a mask for a while. Fake it.. Till you make it and are feeling it in every cell of your body! Start listening to Jack Canfield, Bob proctor, Louise hay etc do some self development, become the person Christ will help you to become. And yes, it sucks!! All the best, hugs from New Zealand.
