Q: I got married at the age of 21. He was an abusive person who physically and verbally abused me. He was into physical relations with other women too. I took divorce from him at the age of 24 finally. Now am 30, I have been in relationships after the divorce. But none worked out. Two relationships ended because both guys said they can’t marry a divorced woman. I feel very depressed and lonely now. Please help.

A: I understand that you have gone through an extremely bad marriage. Don’t let these failed relationships bring down your confidence. If you are unable to handle your sadness alone, do visit a mental health professional. They might help you cope with your sadness and it can also be a window to vent out what you are going through.
