RECONNECTING

It’s taken me eight months

Eight months to relax and realize that it’s ok now

To let people back into my life

To RECONNECT

Hardly anyone knew I’d left my abusive husband

Eight months ago

Hardly anyone knew that I’d silently crept back (moved back to my home town)

I’m so used to being ashamed of my failures. The marriage was long dead, but I felt as if I failed as a mother. And that was all that has ever mattered to me.

So… I’m slowly but surely letting those who I matter to, know that I’m still alive again…
