I’ve never been more lonely in my life than I was in my 16 year marriage. I’m 18 months out, untethered to another human being, and I am surrounded on all sides by love that I choose everyday.

Thank you for your beautiful articulation. I am composing a piece about how I’m not “bitter” for not wanting to get married ever again. Your words really resonate.
