Separation Papers: Signed

So our friend came over tonight and we signed separation papers.

I'm really tired so I'm not going to go into details.

In the end we had that "talk" a week ago and it was mostly very painful, I'll tell the story sometime. In the end we agreed to a small lump sum payment when he moves out in lieu of the 1/2 the house. I really am going to post how I went about this soon.

I am just numb right now. PMS and tired likely combinations.

Now to tell my brother and mother & then everyone else... on facebook.

The exhaustion you feel now will slowly transition to happiness. Sure, there will be pitfalls along the way, but you'll make it through them. You've made the hard decisions. You've taken the big step. Look what you've already accomplished!<br />
<br />

This is a big step, you are opening the door to possibilities of life. <br />
<br />
Caution - don't tell people on facebook. No one wants to find out big news that way.

What Baz said. You will likely find you have a lot more RL support than you expected. Even if people don't know the details of why your marriage is ending, they will understand that it must be serious. <br />

Hey, strong, brave steps. In your own time.


Truly, you are a braver woman than I! Take care!

Keep breathing....there will be a settling period where the physical absence of your ex aligns itself with the absence of emotional connection you are already accustomed to. Be well.

*hugs*<br />

I am sure you have a lot of things on your mind and are drained.<br />
But congratulations on getting the worst over.

Congratulations, well done, hugs. Please go have a drink (if you drink!)

This is the bit where you find out the quality of people in your orbit.<br />

You will likely get a couple of surprises in this part of the process. And, mainly they are likely to be pleasant surprises. But there might be a nasty surprise in there too. Nothing you can't handle though.<br />

Tread your own path.
