I Am a Divorced Muslim Woman

I am a divorced woman. I am a divorced Muslim woman. I am a divorced woman. I kept saying that to myself just enough times to realize that... I refused to be divorced, I refused to accept that, but I had to because everything that I was doing had to do with it!
Now I can say it. I was a divorced Muslim woman! No, not because we got back together or because I married another man, but because I made a conscious effort to reinvented myself. I made a choice to stop seeing myself as a victim, and a poor divorced woman.
I am now stronger than I was before, because the breakdown of my marriage made me face something really important. It made me face myself!
I had to rediscover things that I have lost on the way, I had to rediscover what my passions are, what makes me happy, and what am I living for. I also learned what I didn't like, what music I hated, and what kinds of gross foods I ate before just to please other people, and what movies make me sick. I am proud of what I`ve achieved in the past 5 years and I know that the struggle was worth it. I know now what to ask for, not only from me, but also from the others. I know what I am ready to accept and what I just can`t deal with.
I never thought I would say that, but I am glad that thinks worked out this way - not necessarily because of the divorce, but for its meaning. For me it was the end of a bad life, with violence, with sorrow, but also the beginning of a new life.
That`s why now I feel like telling every divorced woman, don`t be afraid, you can do this! You can start all over again, just by realizing how strong you are, just by knowing that you have that inner power and you need it now to make things right for you! Please ask for help, talk to other women that are going through the same experience, believe in yourself and in God and everything will be just fine!
I cried, I screamed, I was tortured by questions, I went through the pain. I took time to heal. It took a while. At the end of all of that I found relief, I found healing and I found hope!
Allow yourself to feel every little feeling of the process, be prepared to be overwhelmed with pain, strange feelings and hurtful emotions. But if you take the time to heal, you will embrace the changes, accept the changes, and you will come out on the other side- whole. Feel your feelings. Don`t deny what you are feeling, you are human, and humans are allowed to make mistakes. We make mistakes, we fall, and we learn the lessons. Humans also have a great power. We have the power to change and adapt. Remember that and believe! You are all that - I know, because I was a divorced woman!
My journey from pain to peace has been dramatic, deep, and extremely rewarding. My children are thriving, my skin is glowing, and I have created a life that I truly love.
