I wouldn't say it felt "good" or "bad." I just didn't care one way or another anymore so it wasn't like I was hoping for this and enjoyed hurting her. My goal is to make my life and my kids lives better and if the reality is she could help in that goal then I would listen. Some people do legitimately change and turn their life around. I was looking to hear remorse, responsibility, etc... from her. I didn't hear it so I called her out on her BS. I wonder if I should have just said No Thanks and left it at that vs sharing any emotion on the matter because I can't change her, how she thinks, feels, or acts. Nor is it my job to do so. Still hard to disengage completely I guess, but I think I did well. I pretty much brought up a couple things and said this is why what you are telling me is meaningless and therefore nothing has changed. She was still blameshifting like crazy. Started yelling at me for filing for D 2 days after she moved out... REALLY???
She asked if I was seeing someone and I said none of your business.
Anyways I picked up a new toy for myself this week so any memories of this conversation with the Ayatollah are about to be washed away... View image: boat
My life is better than I can remember. Everyone going through it - stay calm, know yourself, hold to your morals, and keep the faith. 18 months of personal therapy on my own dime. Best money ever spent.
I'll sign off with my new theme song via Chris Janson as I sail off to better waters:
But it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets
Yeah, and I know what they say,
Money canít buy everything
Well, maybe so,
But it could buy me a boat
