Today XH said he would like to still have a relationship with me on some level. Said he loves me very much as a person. I told him I could not be grouped with his many friends male and female who he has known for 20 or 30 years. I said I could never go back to being 4th or 5th important on his list. Back to NC now
Yes NC helps to move forward. I don't like the idea of a timeline for healing. Just make sure your days have activities, people, and whatever makes you happy in it. He may want to have a "friendship" with you but other than being able to tolerate him at family functions because of the kids, nah, why have a friend that treated you so badly ? I don't understand the friend stuff with XSs when they threw us away.
