Wow.. I never could have predicted being this happy on the other side.

16 years ago today I married the man I loved. We created a beautiful family and had what I thought was a beautiful life.

1 year ago today my divorce was final from that man who turned out to be a dooshbag and was more concerned with his own happiness than in keeping his vows and protecting his family.

So I celebrated tonight- got all dressed up and went out to a trendy little wine bar. Had a lovely evening with some special people in my life. It was full of laughs, sweet compliments, and fun. Oh, and champagne. Lots of that!

What a difference a year can make! I have a perfect new home for my children, absolutely LOVE my job, have such a fabulous circle of supportive friends, and am seeing a wonderfully caring and supportive man.

Hang in there if you are just starting your journey to freedom... There is happiness on the other side!

Love this! I remember when you first started posting PR - isn't it amazing to see how far you've come? I am SO happy for you and you have earned it lady!

For those early in on this process please know that as difficult as the D process is, it truly does eventually get better. Just keep your eye on the ball, keep NC and focus on you, your kids, and your healing. None of us wanted or deserved this road, but there is a light at the end of it, just keep going.

Very happy for you, Rose. Congratulations on your achievements - the most important being that you ditched the Dooosh!

What a great post! I followed quite a bit of your story too PR, and you have put up with quite a huge load of bullshit! I'm so glad you had an awesome night out. You've earned it baby.


I have a perfect new home for my children, absolutely LOVE my job, have such a fabulous circle of supportive friends, and am seeing a wonderfully caring and supportive man.

My home is still needs tons of work and is a huge work in progress, my job stinks, and I just had another little date with someone that didn't pan out to be my Prince Charming, so quit rubbing it in, would ya?

I also have been following your story for years. Seeing your growth has just been amazing. I remember thinking that it was taking forever for your divorce to be final. Can't believe it's been a year already.
