I was married and divorced by the time I turned 30. Not long after that, I entered what I like to call a “charitable rebound” that lasted about two years. After we “officially” moved in together, we broke up after three months - and this pattern happened several times. I had to start all over again, again. It really freaking sucked.
But, now that time has passed, I can honestly say that I’m so grateful for both of those difficult chapters in my life.
