Most of the time, when your husband or partner leaves, it means the thought of leaving, was planned way in advance. This act of him leaving might seem like the most difficult thing you may ever face. You may have tried everything in the books to get your husband back, but sadly he still made the decision to leave. You may feel like you have hit rock bottom. But by him choosing that path of leaving, may prove to be one of the most empowering things that may have ever happened to you.
During the course of the relationship, you may have been all about how to save your marriage. And now that he has left you may have been working tirelessly on how to get your husband back into your home and arms. All this time you dedicated to making his life as perfect as can be, you forgot about yours. You placed all your dreams on hold and was mainly about how to save your marriage for the happiness of your family.
With him leaving, you can now rediscover who you are. It is time to build a better version of you. It’s time to do the things you love without any restrictions. Maybe you did not finish high school or gave up your dream of earning a degree. This was of little importance to you because of your duty of working hard to save your marriage and putting him first always. It is your time now to get that high school diploma or that degree. You will not only increase your options of employment or a better salary, but you will feel great about yourself when you have accomplished this dream you laid aside. And surprisingly, this puts you one step ahead on how to get your husband back.
What hobbies did you give up; writing stories or poems, playing music, cooking, cycling or taking long drives through the countryside? Whatever it was, it is a wonderful time to take up that hobby again. You need to ease out of the usual routine you had in the relationship. Starting up on something you once loved can be hard, when even at this moment you may still be pondering on how to get your man back with you. But you need to work on your own life and that is one way to begin. You may have to force yourself to take on your hobby again, but it will be well worth the effort when you can smile at enjoying what was once a part of you.
It is also a great time to cultivate a new passion. Did you ever want to learn a foreign language, start a blog, participate in a marathon, travel? You can now let this passion drive you into doing something that will be fulfilling to you and even others. It will help bring out your creative side and you will get a sense of purpose because unknowing to you, you will become truly good at that passion.
When you have worked on yourself, you would have become a much better person; an empowered, independent woman. This sometimes leads to a stage of your partner taking note of this. You are back to this woman he fell in love with from the beginning. He may even want to come back home and kudos to you for finding yourself and being able to get husband back into your life. But do not lose yourself all over when you have rebuilt your relationship.
Some partners may not return and from time to time you may reflect on him and have some ‘what if he stayed’ moments. The truth is you will never know the answer to these questions. But one thing you can be sure of is that you are a new woman. You will be ready to face the world stronger than you ever thought you could.
