Happily Divorced!

Hiya everyone!  I've been happily divorced for 2 years now.  I thought that I'd never find myself again but I did, better than ever!  I'm my own person, I know I can stand on my own.  My daughter still sees her father on a scheduled basis.  I onlly hae to talk to him if there's something to say.  All in all, it was the best decision I've ever made!!

Your lucky. I hope to get to your point. I still feel thrown away and useless.

You'll get there! don't worry, it's different for everyone on how long it takes!!

It's wonderful that you've reached that state. I've been divorced for a little over a year now and would love to be where you are now : )

I remember when I first got divorced and a friend who had been divorced for 4 years said that she was the happiest she had ever been in her life, that she was dating and enjoying every minute of her new world. I couldn't see that through my tears and honestly could never see myself being happy again. Men scared me, I would walk to the other side of the street when I saw one coming. I distrusted them and laughed when people reminded me that 'time heals'. Right. Now 4 years later I am so happy that I divorced, my life is so much more honest and real - I started a website called www.exinthecity.com to help other women reinvent themselves after a divorce and through this experience met hundreds of incredible women who showed enormous grace under pressure as they picked up the pieces and shaped a new persona post divorce. I write several blogs on www.exinthecity.com and recently wrote a post on divorce diva on serene independence. That is what I feel I enjoy these days. I live my life with compassion for others but love for myself. HOpe everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

Thanks! It took me a while, but I've realized I'm in a better place now than I was.<br />

I'm glad you have found a way to be happy :-)
