I put my house on the market yesterday. I am selling my house.

one more time....so i can believe what i just wrote....i am selling my house and moving.

I am moving for ME. I am moving for my family.
I am moving because i am worth it.

For months i have been under a tremendous amount of stress and pressure. Am i making the right decision? Is it fair to have my kids change schools and move away from all their friends? Am i letting the OW win? Am i tucking tail between my legs and running away?

YES, i am making the right decision. My kids will be alright.
The OW does not win. I win.
I am not running away....i am running towards happiness. I am running towards a new life, a new marriage and a new me. I am giving myself a gift...i am allowing myself to validate my value, my needs. In the end, i am giving my family a gift...because i am giving myself a safe environment to heal and become whole again...and in doing so, i become a better mother, wife, friend.

It will be hard, there will be challenges, i'm quite sure. But for the first time, in a long time, i feel good. I feel at peace. I feel confident in my decision. I feel like its a step in the right direction. I feel strong, i feel empowered. I feel like i will be alright.

hugs to all of you

Good for you SBS. With the OW living more or less right next door, I think you are making the right decision too. I think this will be a very positive move for you, your family and your R.

Perfect and beautifully written. You, my friend, are envied by BSs who would love to get away from former OP who was a "friend" - myself included.

Wishing you the very best - I am so happy for you!

Hugs!

Good things will come your way with your new beginning. Leave the OW in the dust. A house is just a house. Make your new house a wonderful home.

I'm glad that you're able to go make a new beginning and a new nest for yourself!

thank you for the support. you have all been such a lifeline for me these past 13 months. because of everyone here at SI and a really great MC/IC, i have made strides i would have never thought possible in the months following DDay.

hugs, hope and peace to all of you.
