Congrats V.

A hard journey, but you made it through.

Been there, done that... a couple times. I'm pretty sure I understand what you've been through, and I know I understand where you're at now. Ain't it great.

You, sir, your voice, sir, has been echoing in my head for a few years now.

It *was* mean when you said it, but you were still right when you said it: "So, get from the bitch to the beach", you bastard.

You are right again, unsurprisingly. It **IS** great, you have no idea.

I thank all of you, my friends, for being excellent to each other, and to me, through the years. /bows deeply/

{reposted from yesterday due to technical difficulties}

Two years, today.

I thought all day about what to say to commemorate this landmark in my life, and have come up pretty empty handed. I have seen some of my friends also fall into the abyss of divorce. At least it feels that way at first. When I listened to their stories, I could empathize with their feelings of shock, but another reaction was stronger. That my current state was a testament to just how good it could be, and fairly soon after that shock wears off.

Make no mistake, it was a shock and a painful one. But my whole life is better now, everything is better now. And it's kind of a surprise because at the time, I kind of thought it was the end of the world. At least I had no idea there would be surcease to the pain, that there was an end to the stupefaction. There was indeed and I had no idea how good it would become.

My marriage lasted as long as it did, and then ended. My life continued, I continued. To my friends who are still in free fall, please, take it from me, you're flying rapidly to a much better life. Hang on!

ps, that goes for you too, Tink. Happy Divorceary!

First I noticed how much longer the toilet paper lasted, then how much better life in general was.

My D Day is on my birthday, so although I dont celebrate my Birthday, I definitely recognise the day the court granted my "Me-ness" back.

My Mum said to me the other day..."never understod why you got married, you were never going to, I couldnt understand it".

Yes Mum, neither do I. I was against it from a very young age but fucking immigration forced my hand.

::::grumbles, big fucking waste of money that sponorship was::::
