I had my world blown apart when I was 32 years old.
Without warning, my wife left me and I was devastated.
I felt as if my soul have been ripped in half.
In desperation, I reached out to the man who would been my minister for years but whom I had not spoken to in quite some time.
His name is Rene’ Pare’.
I told him about the end of my marriage and how defeated I felt.
“I feel like a failure.“ I said.
“Why?“ He asked.
“Because my marriage failed,” I replied.
“What if your marriage didn’t fail?“ He asked.
“What do you mean?“
“What if your marriage was complete – – rather than a failure? What if, it was simply done because it had fully served its purpose?”
This reframing of my situation gave me a great deal of comfort.
