You CAN do it! I did, and you can, too!
Left my financially-irresponsible H of 19 years in May 2012. Had been a SAHM w/o a job for 10+ years. Moved 7 hours away to my home state and am staying with a relative. Found a good job in June 2012.
Make good money, pay my own way, have LITTLE contact with my STBXH, see family regulary, and friends sometimes, have not been THIS HAPPY in DECADES!!!
LIFE IS GOOD again! It will be for you, too!
I am looking for an even-better job. Looking for a way to move out on my own. Looking for a way to heal from my cr*ppy marriage. There is ALWAYS work to do! You just need to make a plan and GET BUSY.
1. Is there a relative or friend who would let you live with them? Or loan you money to get back to where you want to live?
2. Reach out to friends (even if it's been a while); REAL FRIENDS want to help you, cheer you up, uplift you when you need it.
3. Get your resume updated.
4. Call local churches/social organizations to see if they can help you (even if it's just a bus ticket out of town).
One of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for Independence. [Charles A. Beard 1874-1948]
