Divorce is never an easy thing to go through, nor endure emotionally during and after the painful process. Divorce is like a dose of death that deeply effects your emotions.
As someone who has personally gone through a bitter divorce due to my ex's infidelity, I know experientially how painful this can be. When watching Larry King Live last night on CNN, Alec Baldwin talked about just wanting to die during his divorce to Kim Bassinger. Alec is a famous actor, eloquent speaker, and political activist.
What I liked most about him is his sincerity, transparency, and humility. Even though he suffered the emotional pain of divorce, he never spoke evil of Kim. Furthermore he did not hold back when mentioning his own emotional low as a result of the divorce. This is a rarity for men, who often project an inability to suffer inner pain from a relationship.
Undoubtedly divorce is an epidemic in our country. Infidelity, inconsistency, and dishonesty abound in our culture as we pursue immediate gratification and disregard anyone's feelings along the way. We need more people to speak up about their personal pain and divorce experience. There are many life lessons to be learned from our marital failures. If we neglect to acknowledge and address such marital mishaps and mis-steps, we are bound to repeat them and later perpetuate our pain.
Let us take off the mask, acknowledge our wounds, be real, and take time to heal. As we do, we shall be able to comfort others with the same comfort we ourselves have received. By processing our pain and not shrinking back from talking about it, we can help multitudes of people who similarly suffer. I salute Alec Baldwin for being open and real concerning his personal pain, which resulted from his divorce.
Divorce is a dose of death. It is something that sideswipes us when we least expect it. Covenant breakers abound in our self-absorbed culture. Sadly it is our children that always suffer the most. Let us not be silent but learn how we can sustain love in marriage and to the best of our ability prevent premature marital breakups and divorces.
