My dearest best friend,

First when I heard the news I was outraged and upset. I cried, screamed and cursed your inlaws and your husband for bringing so much pain on you. I had never known a more devoted and loving wife than you, despite all the extreme hardship that the marriage put you through. You gave it your best and asked for nothing in return. What you deserved was a medal for your heroism and not this.

But, that is yesterday's news.

Today, what I have to say is "Congratulations!". You are back. You are back to being a strong person of your own, in charge of your destiny.

You have many many difficult steps ahead of you. This is a very hard road to walk. But, you can do it. You have taken more difficult steps in your life before.

From today on, you have a new identity and an enormous number of opportunities ahead of you to develop and become your own PERSON.

I can only imagine how hard and painful this will be at the beginning. You got married young and you have had a life partner almost all your adult life. Losing a love is extremely painful. Getting used to your new identity as a single individual won’t be easy. But:

Welcome to 21st century, where women can have an independent identity of their own and do anything they put their mind to.

I am absolutely outraged and mad at your inlaws and your husband for not loving you for the amazing person that you are and the love that you offered them all these years, but we need to focus on the future.

Your future is bright and full of opportunities. You can be anything you want to be. A writer, an engineer, or anything else. Just name it.

From today on, you are a free agent in the universe. There are no limits to what you can do. All you need to do, is dream and that’s what you deserve.

Stay strong, and only focused on the future. Today is the first day of the rest of your (fantastic) life and all the injustice in the world, cannot ruin it.

We all love you and want to be there for you.
