I had really hoped I wouldn't be married by this point, but well here I am... tomorrow will mark 14 years of Marriage to C. It also marks one year that C moved back to Canada with his girlfriend/mistress. Yes, that is correct, my 'husband' moved his girlfriend to this country on our 13th wedding anniversary... talk about a slap in the face! I think the only way to look at this, is to see just how far I have come since our marriage ended... or should I say he ended it when he had his affair.
I am happier, I smile and laugh more than I had for years. I don't miss out on doing things because I am either waiting for him to get home from a trip, or because I'm worried he wouldn't approve. I have made mistakes during this time, but they were mine. I have learned to love again, even if there is more caution involved in that. I found friends where I didn't know I had them, and unfortunately I've also lost friends as well. I've learned that I can handle more than I thought humanely possible, that I am stronger than anyone realized.
I believe the biggest things I have learned in this time, is to not worry about what other people think. I am my own person, with my own ideas. If there is something I want, I can and will get it. I am a wonderful person, well worth loving. My soon to be ex husband never really knew me, I don't think he ever wanted to. He has missed out on knowing a wonderful person.
I look forward to my future, whatever it might hold.
