August 16th was the day my divorce was final...and I was surprisingly ok. It hurt, I was sad...but I didn't cry. To me, it was the end, but it was also the beginning. The last year of my life had been hell, and I'm still feeling the burn from that journey, but for the first time I could actually see the dark clouds starting to disperse.
In I way I was fortunate, we opted for a quick, non contested divorce...and on the advice of my lawyer I defaulted on the paper work. Since we weren't fighting over anything, it was easiest for me to not have to see her, and just wait for the judgment to get sent to me.
I agree with Deejo. Just be strong, and face the day as you have all the ones before.
