The dramatic turn around of our marriage is astounding. I decided to put together this site to share my experiences and the products I used that helped me so much. I’ve also collected an assortment of articles that make some interesting reading. But if you are serious about fixing your relationship, internet articles won’t do the trick. You absolutely must invest the very small amount of money (about 1/3 of the cost of a first visit to a marriage counselor) to get proven, professional, expert advice that the products I recommend will give you. Your marriage is worth it. Don’t short change yourself.
Today, I've never been happier. And looking back in retrospect, it's hard not to be sickened by my choice to stay, especially for as long as I did. But instead of torturing myself about those painful years, I focus on how it's made me into such a strong woman. It was an awful learning experience, but a learning experience nonetheless. I know now more than ever before how a person who really loves you is supposed to love you, that the best kinds of relationships are the ones that make love feel easy, that it's not solely your responsibility to make your partner happy, and that nobody should ever be mistreated for any reason. I had to work on myself for a while to come to those realizations, and though things won't return to normal overnight, I can tell you that it does get better, no matter how defeated you feel. My relationships with my friends and family have never been better, I've been in the healthiest long-term relationship with a man I'm grateful for every day, and, most importantly, I love who I am.
Annette forgiveness is for you NOT him. When you are able to forgive you will finally be free, if you choose to hold on to the pain and hurt he caused you will stay under his control forever. You must not turn the pain back in on yourself by forgiving him you must also forgive yourself for the pain you allowed. In my opinion this is the hardest part not to turn the blame inward. Forgiveness can take time to process and is not instant. I would say 6 months to year to heal and fully forgive is completely normal. Don’t let him hold power over your emotions for one minute longer! He did those things because he himself is hurting, it says nothing about you and everything about what he himself is lacking. You are stronger and by forgiving you can take back your power. Hope this helps..
