I'm Alright



In case you missed it, I posted this weekend that my husband and I are separating.

What I didn't really explain is that I am alright.
I have been anxious, depressed, frustrated, and hurting for a while now.
But since I made this decision, I feel like a burden has been lifted off of me. I literally feel lighter. I am happier, and my children are happier. My husband is not, and I do feel sad about that. I also feel sad for what Andrew will lose.

Other than that...I'm good. I feel confident and strong. And that makes me certain that I'm making the right decision.

Of course, there is much more to this situation than I've posted here. Some of it I may post eventually, some I probably won't. My blog isn't the place to perform a post-mortem on my marriage. And really....there's just no point.

It's time to move forward and get on with my life. There are good things coming our way....of that I am sure!

And I greatly appreciate the support of my blog friends. You all are wonderful!

I always feel better after I make a decision too. By then, I've done all the hashing out. Kicked around the pros and cons.

I'm really glad that you're at peace with the decision you've made.

Hugs hon!

I am glad that you are at peace with your decision. Sometimes when you make announcements like that, people say, "oh look at what your loosing" but they really need to take a look at what you're gaining!!!

You have been on my mind so much since you told us. I almost emailed you but don't want to bother you. Please know that I care. I know you will be okay.

I'm so sorry you have to go through this, but it sounds like you've made the right choice. I went through a divorce in 2009 and it was hard, and I didn't have children. *hugs*

It's such a hard decision to make, but sometimes it's the most difficult paths we take that have the greatest rewards!!! (((HUGS)))

I admire your strength and courage. I really do. I can imagine what it must feel like to have that burdened lifted and to finally feel happy. Honest to God true happiness. Sometimes I wonder if I'd be a happier person (and my kids happier children) if I had the same kind of courage.
