Another asked her how has her life been since she became a divorced woman, and Sarah held nothing back in her lengthy response.
“Divorce is not easy, it feels like losing a best friend, It’s like mourning a best friend’s death to you but also witnessing that same friend’s life through a window without you. The world punishes women for divorces and there’s still so much stigma attached to being a divorcee, you will lose all (of) your married friends, there’s this constant unwanted pity that follows you everywhere you go.
“The feeling of being alone sucks and not to mention the men that have been waiting on the sidelines for the opportunity to take advantage to prey on your vulnerability,” she wrote.
Sarah then advised her followers to go through a divorce or thinking of walking away from their toxic marriages.
