I know I haven’t written much about the break up of my husband and I. I won’t lie it has been a rollercoaster of emotions and I finally feel in a good place which is why I wanted to write this open letter.
To “The Other Women”,
I, first want to thank you for sleeping with my husband. This isn’t coming from a place of malice but a place of actual sincere gratefulness. I knew my marriage was toxic however I tried for so many years to hang on because I thought it was what I was supposed to do. I tried leaving so many times and honestly, YOU gave me the strength to say enough is enough and that I deserve better.
It’s odd how I would tolerate disrespect and abuse but not cheating. Looking back I am appalled at the things I allowed and if you never slept with my husband I would not be where I am today. I am on a path where I feel free and like my spark is coming back. I am starting to recognize my self again. I am happy and none of this would have been possible without you. In fact, I have no malicious feelings, I wish you and my ex-husband many happy years.
