My marriage ended today, unofficially

as in, divorce papers haven't been filed yet, but he packed up all his shit and left. AND I FEEL SOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i never thought it would be this easy when it finally happened. he was emotionally abusive, to the children and me. he was selfish. he was a fucking asshole. and i just spent the afternoon liberating myself, i turned his mancave into a playroom for the kids.

so.. how long will this high last? i don't even feel anxious and i've had anxiety disorder the whole 2 years i've been married to him. but i'm afraid of this feeling being too good to be true. i am now a single mom of 3 kids! that's nuts!

  • It feels good because it was the right thing. If it wasn't you would feel all that anxiety still......maybe that was why you felt the anxiety during the marriage because it was not right. Now you can be happy!! Things happen for a reason.
