|Annemie Odendaal: "More lives than One"|
After my divorce I mainly reverted back to who I was before the wedding, and even though that was a great version of me, it is still not who I am eight years on. Make no mistake, I do not blame my wasband for that, not at all. I knew better. It's not as uncomplicated as it may seem either. Even though I am myself again - happy, healthy, free and creative - I still have this hole in the deepest part of my soul, and sometimes I am scared that it might be visible through my eyes.
PS: One year later and I'm reading this post again. I am thrilled to report that I have found that safe planet to land on, and I feel that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in my life. I still regret ever getting married, but hey, we all have made mistakes. It is how you deal with challenges and how you rise above everything and grow that counts. I could not be happier, and if I had to go through all of that to get here, I don't regret a thing!
