Thank you everyone Such wise and meaningful advice, I truly truly appreciate it. It's very comforting to know I'm not alone. I can definately relate to the feeling like I 'failed'. When I told my parents, my father was especially disappointed, but not directly, just in his voice. Makes it tough.
I'm looking forward to standing on my own, reclaiming the friendships my marriage pushed out the door. Being an independent and successful woman.
Thanks again to everyone for the kind support.
