It’s been a month since I moved out, and divorce has pretty obviously been the best decision for everyone. My stress is way down, we don’t fight in front of our kid anymore, really value our time with him and are able to recharge ourselves and reflect.
It is hard not seeing the dogs as much, not being able to snuggle with them, but they are happy to see me when I pick up my kid, and I give them lots of love each time.
The cat is a good companion. Wakes me up during the night more than I’d like, but has given me something to keep my mind on and has staved off some loneliness for sure.
