You are right ManBearDivorce, there is more to life and generally I'm ok with my new path and have been enjoying my new freedom with my children. Though every now and then the sadness and anger comes and I have to let it out. Whereas I used to text ex questions when I felt like this I now rant to a few of my closest female friends.
I did a reiki course last weekend and I think I'm having an emotional clear out from that. Whilst this is necessary and good for my healing it is depressing!
Feeling Consumed - I guess we will just have to accept that our ex's are so broken that they are not ever going to experience true happiness as they are not able to look inside themselves and do the work necessary to become decent human beings.
We on the other hand have a wonderful and colourful life ahead of us! :)
