Words can’t express how much you have touched my soul. I am changing my life one day at a time. I was raised as, what society would call, an “alpha female” by a single mother. I had to learn to help and support from a very young age. As an adult I was the primary provider for my mom and you younger siblings. I thought this was virtuous thing for me. But now I realise that made into a husband under the label “ms independent. Now I’m 39 divorced with 3 young children and a newborn. Just exhausted tired and broken hearted. My husband would always argue about how masculine I was and how I lacked femininity. I was so ignorant to all of his truths that I would lash back out and emasculate him in defence. Eventually he got tired, packed up and literally walked out the door with his family, leaving me with my 3 children( from a previous marriage) and pregnant with his. I was so broken and it is only God that Is healing me and has guided me to wonderful people like yourself; teaching lessons that my own mother and no other women in my life ever taught me. I am trying so hard to change, embrace My feminist and become the woman God designed me to be. I prayGod reconciles me with himself blesses me with anther food husband. I messed up on a good man if not the best man God had for me. So thank you for for sharing these life lessons. May God guide and bless you. It is well needed, especially in the African American Caribbean community.
