I had the great honor of being a guest on the Black Thirtea podcast!
All in Old Relationship
Over the course of my divorce, I went to the courthouse a total of four times.
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.
There was a relatively short period of time wherein I was completely unsure of the fate of my marriage. In that time, I was desperately trying to figure out what was happening, why it was happening, what was going to happen, and how I could change it. In conversations with family and friends, there was one common response I kept getting - “oh, he’ll be back.”
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
The holidays can bring a lot of family, love, and laughter. But if you’re grieving a lost loved one, it can also bring a lot of loneliness, rejection, and sorrow. I sincerely hope this Christmas that you’re experiencing the former. But if you’re not, I want you to read this post and take heart that this is only for a season; next holiday season will be better.
There were all kinds of questions asked whenever I told people I was separated or divorced. Younger women (meaning women my age because, you know, I’m young) would usually ask “did you see it coming” and “why?”
