Loss of relationship with wife...children and grandchildren!

by Charlie

To make a long story short....I married a women 22 years ago....who had children from a previous marriage. I, having no children of my own flesh and blood... considered her children as my own. We were not able to have children together because she had her tubes cut and tied. We are now in the process of getting a divorce...after months of my trying to get a marriage councilor involved failed.

I have no contact with her or her children....or the grandchildren I fell in love with. It has been almost 8 months. I know I messed up by confessing some stuff I was going through while clinically depressed. They have lost all respect and trust in me. Is this a normal reaction to a divorce in a situation like this? Please...I need to know....Thanks....Lonely in PA

When we suffer loss, whether it be from death, loss of a job, divorce, losing a friendship or
even losing our health, we hurt. Yes, it's normal, what you are feeling. Your life as you knew it has changed, went in another direction,
dragging you with it. Everything happens for a reason.

I am trying to work my way through a lot
of pain right now due to the death of my mom and brother, a year apart. I don't want holidays to
come, or company to visit. But I have children
and grandchildren, I want them to be happy. So
I am trying for those I love. You are in my prayers; I wish for peace and comfort for you.
Look to your faith and don't give up.
