We torture ourselves with gnawing questions of: “What did I do wrong?”
My Story is about love and finding my way back with a more organic approach, to keep falling in love and risking it.
I loved a man when I was in my 20s. We began as friends; we were both hard workers and got along brilliantly. He was there for me through the long illness and death of my sister, who loved him as well, and we bonded through both the laughter and pain. We were together for seven years, before finally tying-the-knot in a simple ceremony in London just before we dived across the pond to embark on married life in the street-lined streets of southern California.
We had every reason to believe we would be together for life. So when that seemingly unbreakable bond started to sever, it was an especially agonizing puzzle for me. Where had it gone off? Why were we growing apart? Something was troubling him, but he wouldn’t say what. I kept telling him that I couldn’t help him if he wouldn’t let me in. After giving him my everything, I felt that I’d failed him as a wife and as a woman. I stopped asking questions. I stopped digging for answers. We were having absurdly loud quarrels over utter nonsense.
One summer evening, I came home from work earlier than usual. Something was gnawing at the pit of my stomach as I ventured up the stairs to our bedroom. I remember it so vividly. I opened the door, and there he was dressed in one of my cocktail dresses, pearls around his neck, 6-inch heels jammed on his feet, my lipstick smeared across his lips. Amid my shock and confusion, the man I loved boldly told me he wanted to be a woman.
I took a deep breath, and I filed for divorce. This was a stranger with whom I’d been more intimate than anyone in the world, and I felt as though the cocoon of love we shared was all a lie. Specific painful memories from our marriage made a lot more sense in retrospect. I was reluctant to leave my pain, yet it was clear that I needed to opt-out, and fast. I squared my shoulders, swallowed hard, and embraced my recovery. I was suddenly free of the feeling of having failed him, but this did not relieve the agony I faced in seeking intimacy and connection from another soul.
I set out on a quest for transformation, where I stepped outside of everything I knew. I was unafraid to go deeper and face love head-on. But the one invaluable skill I honed was to trust my gut and I go with it, that is my gold.
What I hope to provide in my work is a voice of experience, drawn from many years of healing my own heartaches, to finding healthy, loving relationships. I find joy in working with men and women to inspire love.
