I only feel relieved

Today was final court day and I thought I'd be an emotional mess (also 2 days before our would be anniversary) but I only feel relieved. My son is legally safe. (Was granted full custody and all legal rights for our son and xh may only see him under supervision during the day)

It's over. I had a strong reaction just after the judge questioned me (shook uncontrollably and cried quite humiliatingly) but I think that was all the anxiety finally being released. I can truly say I don't want xh back. I don't miss him. I am so relieved to be rid of him. I know there is still a lot to overcome but this is a huge step.

I can breath.

Not sure whether "congratulations" is he right word but I am glad for you and it gives me hope that I will find peace and calm along the line. Sounds it took a lot of courage to get to where you are today.

I can breath. <<< This statement is so deep. I'm so happy that you are feeling relief and that your son is legally safe. Keep on breathing that freedom.

Relieved is definitely the right word.

Breathe and I hope you feel some peace too.

So, so glad for you. :)

Although I wasn't married to ex, I feel very relieved too that I am no longer with him, and my children only see him at weekends.

I went through a phase of not being able to breathe as my emotions were just so overwhelming. It's nice to finally be more at peace with myself.

People who cheat suck the life out of the people they are supposed to be most loyal to. My children and I have suffered so much because of xWS' actions and I can honestly say that life is now looking good for us without him in it.

My dreams are slowly turning into reality and I know my children can only benefit from this. There is so much to be grateful for and look forward to.

Enjoy your new freedom! :)

Well done, BrokenDaisy. What a long and painful process.

They say that Journey's End is also a path to new beginnings.

Maybe finally putting all the papers away will be the end of tears and you can sign on for new things.
