Re: Two week notice
Sorry that after all this time together that it ends like this for you, P2. I, too, experienced that change where the person you ended up seems so different from the one you fell in love with, though it sounds like your STBXH is much worse.
As much as I never wanted to be divorced or to raise any children in a split home, I did not shed a tear on the day of my divorce, either (Valentine's Day, 2013), and haven't shed a tear about the divorce since. Other things, yes, but not the divorce itself. I wondered if, even though I felt pretty hardened towards him, at the final moment, if I'd feel emotional when I stood before the judge. Surprisingly, not a bit. I felt strong, and knew it was the right decision for me, in order for me to be whole and healed, so that I could be a stable parent for our child. Sounds like it might be the same for you. The divorce is just a legal recognition of what had already gone down long before.
You've shown yourself to be a strong, compassionate person here on TAM. I think you'll see this as the start of things getting better for you.
I'm undecided on which pants to wear today -- smarty, fancy or sassy?
