Thanks for asking…. 24 Comments Posted on October 14, 2015 It happened so naturally. Left bare, stripped to my very essence, releasing the shroud that hid my real self while I pretended to be happy. Divorce allowed me to stand unveiled and be proud of who I rediscovered. Being exposed is freeing. Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related
Indeed. Letting go of someone else’s idea of who you are it liberating. Nice work!
Thanks very much!
Love the last line!
I loved this, honest, bold, raw and brave. It’s so nice to pick up on someone’s liberation, it is very inspiring. Thanks for this 🙂 How are the fall colours up there? Peace and love, Harlon
Thank you. The colours are just stunning!
Must be liberating to feel unfettered.
I can definitely relate.
It is a nakedness I cherish.
WOW, I have been divorced and you have perfectly captured the liberation I felt once I got over being stripped of everything I thought my life should of been with him. You really are stripped raw from the onslaught of emotions, and then reborn, liberated…and simply happier than you have ever been in your whole life with a whole new purpose. WOW. This was me, then. Exactly how I felt, and you captured it so eloquently and in so few words. Impressed to my toes. WELL DONE!!!
Thank you so much!
Being free from the bondage of marriage mirage seems to have worked in her favour.
Yes, it has.
The shift to the present tense in that last line is a great idea to end on. The reflection building up to the epiphany like that. I really like this.
Thank you very much.
Wow! This is really powerful! Beautiful writing!
Thank you so much. 🙂
In 42 words you gave me chills. Superb writing.
Thanks so much, Mike!
