Check out below the Instagram post shared by Ayesha:
Her post continued, “I felt as if I had let everyone down and even felt selfish. I felt that I was letting my parents down, I felt that I was letting my children down and even to some extent I felt as if I was letting God down. Divorce was such a dirty word.”
This is the second divorce for the 46-year old Ayesha who was married in the past to an Australian businessman. She even shares two children with him – Aliyah who was born in 2000 and Rhea born in 2005.
She even mentioned going through a divorce for the second time now and how terrifying it is. She said it was ‘really scary’.
She further wrote, “So now imagine, I have to go through it a second time. Woooahhhhhh. That is terrifying. Being divorced once before already, felt like I had more at stake the second time round. I had more to prove.
So when my second marriage broke down it was really scary. All the feelings I felt when I went through it the first time came flooding in. Fear, failure and disappointment x 100. What does this mean for me? How does this define me and my relationship to marriage?.”
Ayesha shared one more post on social media on Tuesday. She started it by writing, “HAVE YOUR FRIENDS LEFT YOU, NOW THAT YOU ARE DIVORCED???”
