Divorce is better

It's been a while since I posted. Things are at a stalemate, and I'm dying to get this divorce finalized. I'm scared of the results, but just ready for them to happen.

I read this today, and I think I love it. Hopefully it rings true for any of you out there who got divorced and are living a happier life now:

No matter how contentious or acrimonious or downright explosively miserable the end of your marriage was, being divorced is better. It always is. It was sad. It sucked. Now it's better.

Have a happy Friday!


  1. Amen to that, I am living proof!

  2. I love the part: It was sad. It sucked. Now it's better. It's like - suck it up and move on. Love it!

  3. I find it better and I'm happier and there are so many positive things about it and yet I do have periods of grief. It's better but its a loss too.

  4. Oh, definitely a loss. Lots of grief now and probably in some ways forever. But I'm determined to "find my happy" in all of it, too.

  5. Kids are mostly the affected ones during a divorce. They’ll be puzzled about what’s happening and what they should be doing, particularly when both of you decide to live in different home. It’s good that both of you agreed on the scheduled routine about your children. I hope the kids liked it too. Before you decide on who should take care the kids, you must first ask them if they want it. Anyway, stay strong. You can do it. ->-Janay Stiles

    1. Well, my kids are too young to ask what schedule they'd like. We're starting a new schedule next week (on a trial basis), and I am doing my best to prepare them. I hope they handle the change well. Thanks.
