The words that I never thought I could utter have been said. Left my lips and took on a life of their own outside of my anxious mind.
A few weeks ago, I told him I’m moving out. Then I contacted a lawyer and began divorce proceedings. Tonight we actually talked business: settlement money, child support, budgets … all that.
I did it.
OMFG … I DID IT!!!
Our conversation was not easy. It was tinged with anger and hurt feelings and more anger. But it moved. It moved to a place of collaboration that I at one time thought was impossible. It’s happening. I feel … good. This is the right course. It’s a far from over, but it’s further than it ever has been.
*breathing and giving thanks and stepping forward.
