HAPPILY EVER... FUCK THAT
BY CONSTANCE HALL
Ever thought you were going to grow old with someone and then boom, they’re gone? The inner fuckwit is exposed, the midlife crisis hits, the grass was greener, or the other pussy seemed sweeter.
Sucks doesn’t it? Rips your entire being open. You cry so many tears that you’re too dehydrated to piss for a week. Money, happiness, security, family – all gone, just like that. What the hell just happened?
I feel like I’ve spent half my life talking to divorced women. They would tell me their stories while I cut their hair, and then later they would share their experiences on my blog. One day I became a divorced woman myself, and the one thing we all had in common? After the biggest storm in our lives came the sweetest sunshine.
Happily Ever… Fuck That is a guide that will help you through your significant separation, the lowest of the lows and the eventual highs.
Paige Turner is a fictional story woven throughout the book. I used fiction to tell a true story, inspired by the hundreds of stories that have been shared with me. Paige’s voice came through me – she is everything we don’t talk about. Stories that often can’t be told to protect children, which unfortunately also protects the cockheads who cause us all that pain.
Separated women are often crucified and burnt, sadly something that isn’t new to women. But shock, horror motherfuckers – we rise and become the flames of that very fire. Sometimes you just have to rebuild yourself from the ground up to find out who you really are – and that is where the magic happens.
You are going to be okay.
