Be happy with what you have while you work for what you want - Hellen Keller
Also, you won't have the added stress of trying to keep it secret. Are you worried about it being uncomfortable for your husband around your family? If so, fuck him. He threw the wrench in the works, so he can deal with the fallout.
The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that everything after that looks fucking fabulous
Initially it would leave me spinning but as my asshole ex kept dragging his feet, I began to embrace her sweet nature and bubbly way.
Gotta tell you - she became my best ally. She was smart and helpful during a process that I thought would NEVER end. My divorce was very expensive but I got what I paid for including a fantastic friendly co-warrior.
Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live.
I feel your pain. I agree with pass, talk to your family. I think it might be easier since you're already in the process as opposed to still deciding. That seems to be when people like to express their opinions and feed the seeds of doubt.
I waited until after I filed to tell my family and was suprised by the level of support I received, as well.
This just another day that will pass. Be kind to yourself tonight. I kinda like the fetal position sometimes with my snuggly dog in the middle.
Yesterday my doctor's secretary told me two years from now, I'll occasionally forget I was even married.
We are waiting to tell the kids until we have a signed agreement, which should be within two weeks. Thank God Mr Triple is cooperating.
Thank you all for the support. I really need it.
She doesn't have same history as your mom, with your Dad leaving for LTA OW, but I felt the same way about telling her. My mom is also a huge blabbermouth and would always tell all of our extended family anything about me that I told her. It really stopped me from sharing stuff with her over the years.
I actually had my friend, who knows her well, offer to call her and tell her and then tell her what she needs to do to support me. She told her what I needed and MORE IMPORTANTLY what I do not need. It really helped!
My parents are actually here now. They are driving me crazy, but they are supporting me the best they can right now.
If you can't tell her, maybe someone else can. You do need support and help....is there someone??
