My marriage ended a month ago. I believe my bipolar disorder drastically controlled my moods and emotions during my marriage. Now that I am divorced I am becoming the better person I needed to be all along. I am in an incredible amount of pain that I lost my husband who meant the world to me. I just lost sight of my goals and became swept up in my illness. How can I rekindle a friendship with him and regain his trust? Is it possible? I am open to any helpful suggestions.View Thread
I really feel for you. My husband recently divorced me after a very complicated and painful marriage together because of my bipolar disorder. I was manic and acted in ways I would not act now. I believe that every relationship can be healed, and God can work only the way God can, so pray about it every day with your whole heart!View Thread
I have learned that trust once gone is nearly impossible to rebuild. To answer your question I saw the light once I was officially divorced. Once I realized that I could not go back to him I was able to accept responsibility for all of my actions and work on becoming a better more functioning person. I have worked hard this past month, and I pray every day that my ex husband can forgive me one day and accept me into his life again. I am proud of you for not giving up on your boyfriend, but you might need to let him go so he can do some growing on his own. I am not at all who I was in our marriage. I am self-realized and more mature now. Pain is a good teacher, and it teaches patience above anything else.View Thread
