Despite divorce being so common, it can sometimes feel like you are the only "failure" out there when it comes to your marriage ending. For me, the choice to end my marriage was easy. The positives that have come out of my decision far outweigh the jokes about me having an ex or the prom picture that haunts me to this day. For others, it may not be or have been so easy.

Today I am here to tell you that you are not a failure, as well as 7 more things you may have falsely bought into. -By Krishann Briscoe
