Relationship status: Officially untethered

1 Comment

Yeah, so, your girl is officially divorced.

How do I feel? Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so this is how I feel …

I thought I’d feel sad when the final divorce papers arrived, but instead, I felt happy. I feel free. I can walk into 2023 untethered. I mean, as untethered as I can be when I’m still raising a child with someone, and I have to pay them child support. But still, I’m untethered.

I doubt my anger toward him will ever go away. I will always be disappointed in him for cheating, but I’m even more disappointed that he never tried to save our marriage. That’s the part I’ll never forgive or forget. He was never real with me. It wasn’t until he wasn’t here anymore, and after I healed my shattered heart, that I realized how lonely I had been the last few years of our marriage.

Now I’m happy. It’s a beautiful day to be nobody’s baby.
