It's been a year since the split, and people are asking me how I am doing. My answer? GREAT! And yes, that is the truth. I have my moments where I want to throw in towel and call quits. Hey, who doesn't? That's pretty normal. But I'm healing, and I'm learning that I'm not crazy. It's amazing! I'm not the crazy one!! I never was!!! It's mind-blowing. I just finished reading Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft and it confirmed that I'm not crazy. I'm not stupid, I'm not crazy, I'm not lazy, I'm not a horrible person. I've just spent years either being told I was, or being made to feel like I was.
So now when I'm asked how I am doing, I can say GREAT. Yeah, we're broke, we struggle with things that I hate struggling with, but really, life is great. I can say that Life's been good to me so far(Thanks Joe Walsh). :) I haven't started dating, but I do have some prospects. I'm making some cuts to improve the financial situation and make things better. Things are certainly looking up for all of us.
