It was a bitter pill to swallow, learning that her husband had been cheating on her for years. But she choked it down, determined to never give him the satisfaction of seeing her crumble. She would be strong, for herself and for her children. They deserved that much.
It was a bitter cold winter, and she spent many nights huddled in front of the fireplace, trying to keep warm. She would occasionally catch a glimpse of her husband in the distance, and the sight of him only made her more bitter. But she refused to give in to her emotions.
One day, she decided to confront him. It was a bitter confrontation, and neither of them emerged unscathed. But she felt better for having finally voiced her pain and anger.
Now, she was moving on. It was a bittersweet feeling, knowing that her marriage was over. But she was determined to make the best of it. She had survived the worst, and that made her stronger.
