Before Dave and I attended the Relationship Lifeline we had been through an ugly divorce. During our marriage there was a lot of infedelity on both sides and treating each other with little or no respect. Going thru the divorce we both hit an all time low. I was depressed and couldn’t sleep. I felt worse than I ever had in my life. I didn’t want to do anything. Didn’t want to work or go anywhere. I didn’t want to talk to anyone except my kids. I wanted to disappear or better yet just run my car off the road and be done with everything. The only thing that kept me from doing that were my children. I knew I couln’t be that selfish and make their lives even worse than I had. The divorce was hard enough for them. There were many days that I don’t remember what I had done. I had completed many assignments at work and had no recollection of doing them. I cried A LOT. The days that I didn’t have my children were even worse. All I did was cry and eat. I knew I couldn’t go on like that for much longer. I was talking to a friend who had been to the Relationship Lifeline and she was attending an Individual program and asked me to attend with her. I immediately signed up because it was something to get me out of town for a few days. I had no idea what it was going to be but I needed to get away. I attended the Individual program and it changed my life. It changed my attitude, my outlook on life, how I felt about myself and everything else going on at that point. Going home after the Individual training, I knew I had to fight to get my family back together. I broke off my other relationship, (the one that brought my marriage to an end), and I started with trying to be friends with Dave. I had done some pretty rotten things to him so he wasn’t so sure about believing me. He was pretty skeptical about my intentions because I had hurt him pretty bad and he was now involved with someone else. He was in a whirlwind of not really knowing what to do, kind of like where I was before I attended the program. Before I left our marriage, he begged me to try anything to try to work on our marriage and I wouldn’t. I just left and turned his whole world upside down, so with me coming back and wanting to try, he wasn’t so sure. I suggested he attend the Individual Intensive and so he did. The program helped him to forgive me and realize that I wanted to try to make it work among so many other things. The next month we attended the Relationship LifeLine together and it helped us both to know we could put everything behind us and make it really work this time. We ended up getting re-married at Newport Beach the day after we finished the intensive program just a little over a year ago. Our lives have truly been changed thanks to the wonderful people who helped us at the weekend and all of the things we learned while we were there. I can’t imagine where I would be right now if we hadn’t attended. THANK YOU RELATIONSHIP LiIFELINE FOR SAVING MY LIFE AND OUR MARRIAGE!!
