As I now sit with my feelings, I reflect on the myriad of emotions that come with getting a divorce. I want to share how I navigated some of these feelings. This week, we’ll talk about anger. 

A little over three months later, I went to check my mail after a long day of work and there was a large manila envelope stuffed in the mailbox. On the very first sheet inside, I saw that our settlement agreement was approved and that as of May 23rd, we were divorced.

A few months after my ex left, sometime in late January, I was sitting around, minding my own business and rebuilding my life. And then WHAM! I got a hostile text from my ex saying that the paralegal he hired for our divorce had been trying (unsuccessfully) to serve me with divorce papers.

Once I had sufficiently avoided the panic of never being loved again by embracing the fairytale, I then wanted to watch things that were a tad bit more realistic. I needed to watch someone hurting like I was hurting, and feel comforted or amused by how they were handling it. So I turned to heartbreak movies.
