Five years ago, as I waited for my case to be called at the Wynberg Divorce Court, I received a message from a work colleague. Part of that message read – ‘Feel us at your back.’
As I sat on that hard, uncomfortable bench – waiting to publicly say why I was filing for a divorce and to hear whether or not the judge accepted my reason, those words struck such a cord.
‘Feel us at your back…’
What that meant to me, in that moment, was that I was being held.
I straightened up a little. Thinking to myself – you’ll get through this moment. Without shame. Without judgement.
I just received the strength and energy of those words.
I also realised how vital it is to have a tribe that supports you in this way, when your life changes so drastically.
Creating this space, this blog, is my way of being at yours.
I hope the feeling deepens as we get to know each other.
We need to hold each other up… Don’t you think?
With love and understanding
