It can be incredibly difficult to come to terms with being left by your spouse, especially when it has occurred seemingly out of the blue.
In the immediate aftermath, you may feel as though you are swimming against a relentless tide of guilt searching desperately for answers, during which you examine every aspect of yourself to see how or why it could have happened. You may spend an equally lengthy amount of time asking yourself why you never saw it coming. How could they behave so normally when in reality, they must have been planning to exit the relationship?
The simple truth is, you may never get to the bottom of it. In time, your ex might furnish you with a list of reasons, but they may be loosely veiled excuses hiding a completely ulterior motive.
If you have been left drowning in confusion, try to concentrate your focus on what you do know, your mental health and well being are paramount now and it’s not the time to let paranoia creep in to fill you with guilt for a scroll full of self-doubt that is probably entirely unfounded.
Life is complicated enough at the best of times. Don’t be afraid to seek the help of a doctor or counsellor to help you pull your threads back together, put one foot in front of the other and move gently forward.
