...and although I am better than I was on the first or second antiversary, this third one still sucks donkey balls. Will be happier when it is April 9th!

Be extra nice to yourself today.

((b4m)) In the end, it's just another day. At least that's what I will be telling myself when I hit my 2nd next week.((Hugs))

(((Hugs)) Today is my antiversary as well. It's my first since DDay. It also would have been my 10th anniversary. It sucks that what should have been a happy milestone turned into...this.

Mine went by last month.
It was just another happy day that went by. Just a reassurance of my healing status.

((housefulloflove)) ah we share the same antiversary date.

Thank you all for the virtual hugs. I find myself singing along with the radio today so I know I'm better. It does get easier. Time.

Mine was over the weekend and I felt nothing. Is that healthy?

In all fairness, I was SOOOO done by the time we ended it so maybe I had a jumpstart on healing.

It will stop being a big deal. In a few years you may even forget about it until after it passes! My anniversary was 4/8 as well. 22 years, it would have been. but I now look at 4/8 as "freedom day"... the day HappilyUnmarried (then (UnhappilyMarried) stopped being Ms. Doormat.

t/j side story (I forgot about this until now). I kicked him out for good on 4/7/07; the day before our 16th anniversary. It was Good Friday, the kids were out of school. He told me he wanted to go hiking with OW and her kids that day because he wanted to see if being with her and her kids all day would drive him crazy enough to stop loving her. He wanted my permission! Fuck that! I was a doormat for 4 months prior, where I would let him get away with such crap, and that was my last straw. I spent our anniversary packing his shit all up and putting it in boxes in the garage.

It was the best day of my life. I felt free. I reclaimed my house as my own. 4/8 Freedom Day :)

I guess yesterday (4/9) was my antiversary of 2 years. It was rough.

Hey, I got one better! My anniversary is December 25th!
But it doesn't bother me anymore. I'm soooooo happy I got rid of that bum!
It will get better.

(((better4me))) chiming in a bit late here, mine is also the 8th, would have been 22 years. Each year gets easier.
