Ran into STBX in laws yesterday, including my beautiful princess. STBX has a gender ambiguous first name, like Pat or Chris. My princess told me "guess what? There's a new jojo and his name is ????? Just like my aunt ?????!"

I smiled. I kissed her on the forehead and said goodbye.

Wait, I need help understanding - The OM has the same name as your X????

I'm sorry sunsets. It's extra painful when the person ripping our guts out is doing it so completely unintentionally (hence the six years old). This is hard. You really took it like a champ.

Sorry man. That must have been rough. Sounds like you handled it well though.

Two months ago this may have put me down for the count. Yes Artemesia, same first name. My princess didn't know any better. I'll love her forever for showing me my path.

It's a good thing now. Last bridge burned. I emailed STBX today. Deadlines and instructions. I have no idea if cunada told her about the exchange. The legal process is in motion as of today. It will be simple. No common property or debts. I'm burning it all and going home.

Thank you all. An thank you Irish. It took the wisdom of a six year old to set the path. Who knew?

And she was right. There is a new jojo. A jojo that's been humbled. A jojo that's gained a wisdom, humility, passion, and strength that will serve me well for the rest of my life.
