How to Remove the Emotion When Dealing With a Difficult Ex

    Another great post on life after divorce. I too celebrated every month when all the bills, including the assumed debt, were paid knowing my ex-wife was driving herself back into debt. After 1,198 days of laser focus on following a strict budget, my only debt now is my mortgage with my savings slowly building. Patience is the key to financial freedom. I am fortunate to have been able to take the no contact route in dealing with my ex-wife. A co-worker advised me early on to refer to my ex-wife by her first name when talking with my children.(“your mother” has a negative sound and no doubt a vocal inflection will be present no matter how hard one tries). So far I have agreed with my adult children not to discuss anything connected to the divorce.

    Gratitude helped a lot and got easier as I processed the grief. In time, I became grateful for for freedom, space, and no snoring. Now, I’m grateful the children are grown and I don’t have to have any contact with him.

  3. This was great thank you.

  4. A lot of forgiveness in oneself.
