So true! Thank you for your words.
Thank you for this! I have to admit I have recently been wondering myself how I lived with this man for so many years and missed so many hints at his true self. I know I accepted it for many years for my kids but […]
I agree DON’T let the “get even gremlins” invade your world. Be bigger than he is don’t stoop to the “he said/did she said/did” mentality. Live honestly and that will eventually come out on top. Love your son and […]
Thank you ladies! I so wish we could all have coffee together. Lots and lots of coffee maybe an entire week or so of chatting
I guess what really made me feel bad about going on a date was actually a little jibe […]
OK I stepped out of my comfort zone and went on a “date” with a man. I met him at work and he is working in NJ for a few months. Since we seem to be the only nice people he has found in NJ he comes in a lot. We […]
I feel for you all. My husband is out of the house and most days I just want the divorce to be final so I can move out and on. I am blessed all my kiddos are over 18. I have been married 25 (almost 26 years) we […]
Yes, a family run 50+ year business. I am blessed to be included here since only family and/or close friends work there.
It has been my sanity! After all who can remain crabby when you’re selling chocolate. Too […]
Everything is his—after all he worked full time I just worked part time here and there while being a stay at home mom. In his eyes I took a college teaching degree and threw it away. I felt blessed to be at home […]
I filed in April 2012–so I am looking at a year of limbo already. I have a feeling it will be a minimum of another 6 months.
I filed soon after he stopped going to counseling. I needed to take back control of my […]
Avayd-Thanks so much for your kind and uplifting words. They truly warmed my heart. I truly believe what you said but it is so nice for it to be confirmed. Just knowing I will have a few people rooting for me when […]
Well this was a long time in coming. You would think he would come and take the stuff he wants. Noooooo! I get to pack it up. Now mind you I am not throwing out or giving away any of his precious stuff. Not the […]
To set up private convo. First friend the person and then you can go to their page and send a private message. Not sure if it works without friending first.
I have been following your posts and thinking and praying for you. I don’t know legally how the whole “who leaves” works. All I know is some days I resent the fact that he is living in an apartment, going to work […]
tired of looking around at the packed boxes, the piles of stuff (memories) to give away, the growing pile of boxes of my soon to be wasbunds stuff. So much more to do to get this house full of 15 years of memories […]
Choose your words prayerfully. You are doing the right thing but, make sure you don’t vomit it out in anger. Be honest in your confusion—tell them you don’t know what is going to happen from here on in. Tell them […]
Sadly guilt comes with being a great mom. That instinct to protect them at all costs. Sometimes the truth is the best protection. Choose your words prayerfully and you ARE protecting them from lies.
Hang in there, […]
So inspiring! I am looking at this journey like the life cycle of a butterfly. I was a caterpillar happily munching along on life when things radically changed and I found myself in this confusing, binding cocoon […]
In some ways it is sad that you are not alone. You’re not! we are all on this journey—we have been blessed to meet each other in such a way, at such a time. I am new here too but, I already know this is God […]
