Strength When Losing Everything

The Ability to Overcome and Reclaim Your life

I have two children. Their father and I had the unconventional start (pregnancy at 19 and marriage shortly after), but we did well together. We rarely fought, we agreed on pretty much everything when it came to raising the kids, we had lifelong goals and a vision for our future — it seemed like it was meant to be. Or so I thought.




As we grow older, we tend to have our hearts broken many times in many ways. But through all the pain, we also become stronger, learn to cope in healthy manners, and heal from the damage. Let’s share the stories that broke us and how we moved forward and mended our hearts.
