Yesterday was my wedding day

United States
September 27, 2020 9:23am CST
I didn't get married yesterday.... Perhaps I should have said yesterday I would have been married 12 years had my ex husband and I not divorced after only two. Some years the day passes me by without me noticing it. I remembered this year because my ex husband came to my mind a few days ago. I didn't have any alcohol to celebrate my continued single status, but that's okay.

You should feel proud of yourself for having the courage to get out of an abusive relationship. I think you are much better off now, even if you are single. And being single is not such a bad thing.

No, it's not a bad thing at all. I've dated since, but never anything serious. I like being single.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Being single does have its advantages. I prefer the companionship of being in a relationship, but I don't rush into relationships just for that reason. Sometimes it's nice to stay single for a while.

@moffittjc Yeah I rushed into a relationship exactly once, and decided that I wasn't doing that ever again.

How do you feel now? Are you happy that you guys aren’t together?

Absolutely, positively without a doubt in my mind. He was an emotionally abusive man. He stole my self confidence, and if I'm being honest, a little piece of that will always be gone.

I think it's about as back as it will ever be... There's a piece of it missing, a silent part that will always question first before jumping in to anything.

@thelme55 Thank You. I used to believe that men should behave like the fairy tales I grew up with. I still wanted them to be that way, even after the way my ex husband treated me. Now I know that when or if I ever get into another relationship, that I have to make my own happiness and can't rely on a silly fairy tale.

None at all. He was emotionally abusive and controlling. I tried to make it work, but I'm glad it didn't.

Some relations are not there to work. And if they become suffocating or toxic or take any sort of toll on you, it is better to come out of it. I am glad you did.

Yes, I am glad I did as well. It wasn't easy the first few years, but I am happy now.

It took me a few years before I was glad that it was over. For the longest time I hung on to the possibility that we might get back together. It wouldn't have been a good thing though.. If we had.
