You have a dream

Standard

On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King delivered his, “I Have a Dream” speech.

What does this have to do with divorce?

To some, divorce signifies the death of your forever dream.

In his famous speech King spoke about equality and the American dream.

Today, women are still fighting for equality in society.  We are not judged by the content of our character, but by the content of our cleavage and the carats on our ring.

We are forever asked about our partnership status.

You can boast about a new career, a renewed spirit, your children, but your relationship status will be what your friends really want to hear about.

It’s bad enough, that for some, the divorce revealed just how much we gave up and how becoming an “I” again seemed like a fate worse than death.

Hopes and dreams must return to you or they will forever be replaced with bitterness and hopelessness. Self-pity will be your constant companion unless you divorce it, too.

When you let freedom ring in your heart, you’ll be free to be who you want to be.  If that means finding a new mate – great.  If that means getting re-acquainted with yourself before you acquaint yourself with a new partner – it’s all good.

To thine own self be true. You will know what works for you.
