Introduction

Starting again is never easy, throwing yourself headfirst into the unknown is downright terrifying, but I didn’t feel I had a choice. I wasn’t happy with any aspect of my life and wished it would change without any effort on my part. One day I woke up and decided to mould it into what I wanted, I decided to take control of my own destiny and seek my own happiness. After 5 years with him, living as common law partners, I was at a crossroad. At this point in any relationship the crucial question becomes: “Where is this going?” I felt the pressure to succumb to marriage from every direction. I promised aloud to never marry or have kids, but he was convinced I would change my mind. When I considered being alone after all this time together, it scared the ever-loving hell out of me, but when I thought of continuing on with the way things were I felt physically ill. I was too afraid to make the difficult decision on my own so I tried to force him to do it for me. I pulled away and picked fights hoping he would leave me, until that fateful night when I became aware; I finally I saw my life for what it really was and recognized the strength in myself. After 5 years I walked away leaving everything behind and I have yet to look back.
 Now I observe other peoples relationships and I spot all the red flags I chose to ignore. I see people staying together because of guilt and fear, because they feel the proverbial clock is ticking and they don’t have the courage to start from scratch. I believe that the reason divorce is so prevalent is because people forge into marriage, knowing in their hearts it’s not right. That’s why I started this blog: to encourage others in my position to not give into social norms and to tell them that it’s never too late to start their lives all over again and live it the way they want to. Welcome to Something’s Broken.
