I am finally going to drop this bomb here for you all to read.
Many of you are aware that I have been going through a lot over the last few months. Sometimes I would drop hints here on my posts about things being tough but I never really was comfortable on making my personal life public.
I am now.
I am just about through the final stages of getting a divorce after being married for just over two years.
I am not going to sit here and type out complete details as I do respect the privacy of the other party also known as the ex. We remain friendly at this time and I hope to build on that friendship for years to come. She is a special person to me and always will be.
We got married thinking it was a good idea obviously. After all we were madly in love with one another and it just made sense. We were happy in the beginning of the legal courtship but as time passed it was apparent that it just was not working. It killed both of us emotionally because we love each other very much to this day. The truth is no matter how much we loved one another we were not meant to be husband and wife.
I came to terms with this before summer but held off on getting legal action done until the leaves changed color because we wanted to see if maybe we separated for a period of time we could make things work but it only became harder for the both of us. It became clear on what needed to be done.
After many conversations we decided to find a lawyer and get this taken care of so we could both go on with our lives. It still is tough to this day and will be hard on us for quite possibly the rest of our lives.
For anyone who knew us we were best friends and complimented one another so well. That of course was prior to the wedding.
As time moved on we started drifting apart from one another and it was just getting to be stressful. Neither of us were happy about the current situation. We wanted to make it work and we tried to make it work but it was something that would never work and neither of us wanted to come to terms with the truth.
I have no regrets from being married. I learned more about myself and the opposite sex from this experience that without a doubt will assist me in paving future paths in life. I will always love her and cherish the good memories we made together.
This divorce is unique in that neither of us hate each other. It was something that had to be done to help each other live our own happy lives. If we would have stayed together we would have just become more miserable everyday and a time bomb may very well have gone off.
I don’t want pity from anyone. I for the most part am happy as is she. We have been going on with our lives since summertime and we both are both contempt with the change even if not completely. Sure we are bummed that it could not work and wish things were different but the fact of the matter is that things happen for a reason.
While going through the hardship I relied on some of my best friends in the world to help me though the pain I felt. I owe a huge thank you for all of the love and support my friends and family provided at the difficult time. I could not ask for better people in my life.
I am sorry if I did not tell some of you out there including family, but I was not ready to tell the world about this. I never wanted a divorce. I wanted to make this work but it was something that needed to be done to ensure a better life for both involved.
I don’t want comments here, or on Facebook, or anywhere saying you are sorry to hear what happened. I want everyone to know that this is what has been going on in my personal life. My life is essentially a public life because of this site as well as whatever else I decide to throw in the internet. I am ok now with everyone knowing about what happened.
Really, I am ok. Respect me and be happy for me and her. There are no fingers to be pointed and no one to be held at fault.
I am moving on with my life.
Thank you for reading.
