Getting Up Again After A Major Life Event And Succeed.
Hello Wealthy Affiliate family.
I wanted to take this time to share a little of my story, NOT to get sympathy but to show that even after life throws you a curve ball or 3, having the right mindset makes all the difference. So thanks for reading.
Note that English is my 2nd language so please accept my spelling mistakes.
Here we go.
When I turned 50, it was a big deal but for me, it was the beginning of great things but instead, it was a horrible time that lasted over a year. I lost my sister to leukemia, needless to say that I was devastated. Our family was barely getting over the loss of my mom. I took it hard, became an angry person and did not enjoy life as I should. I was a walking black cloud.
After months of this, my (now ex) wife asked me to leave, anxiety and depression showed their ugly face, I went to a very dark place, asking myself if life was worth it. I was on disability from my job. Why should I bother continuing crossed my mind a few times.
After losing my sister, my marriage ending, what else could go wrong?
Well, I was terminated after 11 years, exactly 11 days after returning to work
That was my rock bottom. I felt hopeless. I had choices to make and a life to live. I decided to reclaim my life, one person helped me a lot.
I met Renee and at first basically pushed her away, never being lovey dovey and having walls so high, no one could get in but she did not give up.
I started from the very beginning and learned how to work from home, I actually started at Wealthy Affiliate one year ago yesterday. It took a while but I did it. It is not easy but it is do-able.
Part of the process is embracing the good that you have, I have a beautiful family and a boy named Rhys. I love him to bits I live near Victoria, BC, Canada. That is where Kyle and Carson also live.
I do know one thing, Do it right and you can succeed. Don't quit.
Keep going and continue taking action every day.
I hope this helped a bit, it was only once I decided to live my life, my way that things started to change.
I could have easily found an excuse but instead, I found a way.
Thanks for reading and have a happy week.
