Nearly a year on and suddenly feeling like I did at the beginning

I have been separated for nearly a yr after my husband had an affair and the last few days I have been feeling how I did when he first left. I feel tearful and unsure of where and what the future holds. He is quite happy with the woman he left me for and wants our children to meet her as ' it would be easier for me if she could be there when I have the kids '. I feel so down about all this and really am struggling to see any positives. If I was honest I would say I was jealous of how he has moved on so quickly and seems so happy. Where as I am struggling. We were together 20 yrs and I know I am so much better without him that's why I can't get my head around why I am feeling like this. Any words of wisdom appreciated

So sorry for the awful time you've had.
I think it is very very common for emotions to resurface around the anniversary of an event, as there's so many more triggers to remind us. I don't think it's a coincidence that it's nearly a year.
Be kind to yourself. It's a big loss (even though you are well shot of him) and you should allow yourself time to grieve it.
