A little under nine years ago, I started this blog as both means in which to connect with other divorced men, as well as soapbox from which I could vent about my own struggles, as well as share my accomplishments.
In many respects, things have come full circle for me in those nine years. Im older and wiser now. I’m 47 and I now have two failed long-term relationships in my rear-view mirror. That has made me more jaded about relationships than I have ever been my life.
But it hasn’t been all false starts and failure. From those two relationships came my sons – whom I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. My relationship with both of them is as good as it’s ever been. In addition, I have finally found my footing and a sense of belonging in chosen career. COVID-19 and the recent civil unrest in America have made the last year both the most challenging and most rewarding times of my professional life.
The rebuild never ends
