    Sounds wrong … but oh so right, given the end of your post … Happy Anniversary! Having googled it, a 6-year anniversary is candy/iron or wood. I hope you don’t take that as you need to press a few shirt tonight, but I think candy floss on a stick is deserved at the least. Thank you for the hope that there’s better men out there …

  2. Many of your posts leave me speechless. And this one is one of them…I am so glad you have reached a good place. A better place.

    So moving…I totally teared up. My brother said to me, this past weekend actually, “Some of the most evil people hide behind a totally ‘normal’ exterior. It’s pretty scary.”
    I know at least one of those *people* myself.
    It’s been going on 3 years later, and I am still a mess from the betrayal and ensuing damage.
    I hope that I can write a post similar to yours – so inspirational and full of hope – sooner than later. xoxo

    It’s good to see how far life can take you. I’m so glad that you have chosen to share your journey with us, maybe of us are still stuck in “six years ago” and you serve as a light at the end of the tunnel. Reminding us that it gets better, love finds us again, and we are stronger because of all we’ve suffered.

  6. Happy for you. Six years later and you completely show who is the victor here.

    I did not know his new “wife” had a blog. Sheesh. I can only imagine what their life now is like. Not your problem! Lol

  7. I can so relate to this and am so glad you made it through to the other side. It’s beautiful there isn’t it?

    Your reflections on “six years ago” brought back many memories of the people, noises and smells while sitting in the court house hallway…just over two years ago (totally forgot about the “first court date appearance anniversary”). That day my attorney stated, after meeting my now ex-wife for the first time, “she’s fucking crazy” (sorry about the language, direct quote). As disappointed, angry, hurt and frustrated I was that day, little did I know how much happiness I would find over the months that followed. Each day is a new day. Each day is a day farther from the emotional pain. Each day is an opportunity to find happiness. Looking forward to where I will be when six years comes around.

    • No worries on the language – I think it’s required when it comes to divorce:) I’m with you on the ignorance on that day of the good that was to come. I wish there a was a way to let everybody really know and believe that on their day in court. Congratulations on your progress!!

        Many of my close friends laugh at my colorful language when I’m discussing an issue. Usually ends with “she is fucking crazy”. 🙂

  9. We stronger and braver through things that try to break us. Thank you for always sharing and owning your story. I had to reblog this one 😉💜

  10. *We’re*😳 that’s what I get for late-night-bleary-eyed commenting … Typos

    Beautifully written; I am glad you are so happy:)

  13. I’m just starting my journey. It’s all still raw. I was left with nothing but my personal belongings. I lost my job because of stress and my husband isn’t paying his half of the cellphone bill. I’m living in a house with roommates instead of with family or friends, like I thought I was going to be. My son is living with a family friend, which was a mutual decision before the divorce was decided on. My whole life is upside down. I don’t see a positive future right now. All I see is the pain I’m in daily. All I see is the medications and counseling that are barely keeping me sane. All I see is the future that was ripped away from me. I know that someday I will feel whole again. Someday I’ll feel normal again. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon. But your blog gives me a glimmer of hope that the future will be brighter. Thank you for sharing your story.

  14. I related to so much of this! So beautifully written! Thank you!
