Never Happy in my Relationships

Message: I was married and had 2 kids, and it ended in divorce. After 5 years I began another relationship and have a child from this but the relationship is over again. I don’t know what to do anymore.

I am sorry to hear of your broken relationships. It is hard to tell from written text but I believe I am hearing hurt and pain in your statement “I don’t know what to do anymore.” When we have invested our life into another and the relationship does not last we must grieve the loss. I encourage you to take the time to really grieve the loss of this person, relationship and all that It represented to you. I also encourage you to consider taking some time to know and care for yourself at greater levels. Consider seeing a counselor, joining a single parent support group and finding good growth content to read. A few books I would suggest are: How People Grow and Boundaries by Doctors Cloud and Townsend. For loss and grief I suggest, A Grace Disguised by Jerry Sittser.
