Moving on

I never thought I’d see this day.

I never thought I’d see the day where I moved on from what I thought was my forever. It’s odd to be at peace with losing someone that meant so much to me. But it’s comforting to know that I’ve made it this far.

There’s power in being able to look her in her eyes and genuinely wish her well without the hurt boiling within. I hope that one day soon she finds this place that I’ve found and learns to enjoy the lessons learned from our marriage. Partially because I’m selfish and want her to stop barging into my life the way she has…and partially because I legitimately want her to be happy and move on for her own sake.

I see the hurt in her body language when we talk and she realizes that I’m happy without her. I don’t think that either of us ever thought I’d be this independent again. But here I am. And I’m happy. And I’m looking forward to my future.
