Snap back to reality, oh, there goes gravity  Eminem

Yep, ever feel like you are falling into the abyss when reality bites? I haven’t posted on here in ages, which might seem like a good thing, but actually I think I should post more often and be honest, get stuff out there. Heck, nobody reads it anyway. May as well spill the beans.

It’s been 9 months since I told my husband that I wanted to leave him. 7 months since I moved out. Our trial separation has morphed into an actual separation, although I know he still harbours hope, even though we have discussed divorce.

We have no grounds for divorce. The only box we tick is ‘two years separated’, so I guess that’s what it will have to be. Part of me just wants to get it over and done with. We have an odd situation; we work together and still get along. I want us to get along — we have to co-parent and I want it to be as amicable as possible, but I have pulled away and he has noticed.

He asked if I am seeing someone. I can’t tell him, or anyone, the truth. Bizarrely, I want to. I am sort of seeing someone, but it has absolutely nothing to do with why we broke up.


And, as ever in these situations, it’s complicated.
