Exhale!!!

I must admit that I thought I was going to be more upset than I am. Subhan Allah....Until yesterday I didn't realize how much emotional stress I had been fighting for the past however many years. You remember that movie "Waiting to Exhale"? That's how I feel right now. I feel a relief as if I have just exhaled. ALHAMDULILLAH! MASHA ALLAH!

I find that when you finally exhale...is when you realize your prayer has been answered. It feels safe to release all that pent up stress(air)...the feeling of having such a burden lifted cannot be measured. Good luck and I pray for your continued exhaling.

I'm so concerned sister that I may make the wrong sort of comment to you. I just want to say to you that I pray that you feel sound of mind, and strength of spirit.

Only you know what is best....and I pray that you have the perserverance and the stamina to weather the storm.....

Asalaam alaikum sis,

I pray that whatever happens you will have less stress than before. I pray that Allah makes everything easier for you. Although divorce is disliked in Islam and we are made to think we should stay and sacrifice to please Allah. Sometimes a bad marriage will suck us into a hole where we are incapable of worshipping Allah the way we are supposed to. I believe divorcing my first husband was the best thing I could do. I too could finally feel some relief. Take care of your relationship with Allah, this is what matters most.

I have just read your blog starting from the birth of your baby. I feel for you I really do. I am the third wife in a poly marriage that hadn't added a wife for 15 years. It's rough going, all the jealousies and the dividing of time. I'm so sorry to hear you have separated.
