ABOUT 'SURVIVOR MOM'
Survivor Mom is about a personal journey. It’s about heartbreak and emotional abuse. It’s about watching my children’s father walking out of their life and reappearing only to cause anguish. It’s about picking up pieces and gluing pieces together in order to move forward. It’s about shielding my three kids the best I could. It’s about resiliency and it’s about crumbling behind walls so nobody could see.
When you divorce someone with borderline narcissistic personality disorder you better hang on because the ride can get rough. It's like a game, learning how to win the battle with as little negative impact on the kids as possible.
What it is not about is blame. And it’s not about anger. I forgive my ex-husband for all that he did. I forgive him because I don’t believe he chose to be this way. He is living in his own hell and I don’t wish his life on anyone. .
The journey I’ve been on since my married life fell apart has not been an easy one. When I compare myself and who I am now to the person I was 10 years ago I see that the journey has been worth it. Every tear and every hurdle has brought me to who I am today.
The ups and downs of parenting, divorce, harassment, working, going back to school, dating and break-ups, graduating, searching for a job and loving and letting myself be loved again.
My hope is that this memoir will help others dealing with the same situation learn from my mistakes and from my successes. And give hope and reassurance that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
