I have no idea if anyone will remember my epically miserable divorce related posting back in 2012. But just in case anyone does, I wanted to give an update. It's been 3 years. I am now very divorced, Bean arrived safe and well and turns 3 in two weeks, Sprout is in school, nearly 5.
I did train as a life coach and founded a parent coaching practice in 2013, working with families affected by domestic abuse. My life experience has become an asset now! Most incredibly though, I met my gorgeous DP 18months ago, in the most obscure place ever, when I wasn't remotely interested in looking for a partner... on Friday he asked me to marry him and I said yes.
I am posting this in part to let anyone going through a hideous breakup right now know that when people tell you 'this too shall pass', it's true. It does. Don't hold on to anything that is dragging you down... just let go. There is something better waiting for you on the other side
Also, I wanted to say to all who hand-held and looked after me and my DS's through that terrible time, thank you and you and you and you. You gave me back my faith in the good in people. You told me life would be better, and you were right. God bless Mumsnet. x
gosh, how lovely that you guys remembered - and even about the blog! yes the blog lives thanks everything, I haven't put much on about DP or that part of life though. We still live apart 5 days a week so it's more of a 'from the perspective of a lone parent' sort of blog these days.
I know this board is mostly about supporting people through the storms and god knows I needed it when I was here before, but yes, I also know now and then it really helps to have some solid evidence that the shit storm does actually pass in the end. It can and does get better. Onwards and upwards my lovelies! Always time for a quick though. Biccy anyone?
