This pic sums up my life. My divorce far from being a traumatic thing has been the most liberating and freeing experience of my life. I am actually happy now. Not stuck in some messed up relationship with someone who does not want me. My home life has improved dramatically. I live in a clean nice house and it is just me making the messes so they are easy to clean up. I get to do what I want when I want to do it. I get to spend my money on what I want. It has been tremendously liberating. I am much happier now than when I was married.
My relationship with my son has improved dramatically. We actually spend quality time together now. We do fun activities and experience things together. The last Saturday that I had him I took him to open his first bank account. We went out to eat at Bob Evans and I had him practice his driving. It was a fun time. And he and I both seemed to really enjoy it.
So that about sums it up. My life has improved dramatically since getting divorced. My ex-wife and I have made it a healthy transition instead of some traumatic experience. After experiencing my mom and dad divorce when I was I kid that was what I was afraid of. But it has been far from that. I am glad I got divorced and I think everyone involved will be much happier.
My relationship with my ex-wife was dysfunctional. It’s hard to tell how messed up your relationship is when you are in it. Now that I am set free I can see how dysfunctional my relationship with her was. To sum up the relationship I was comfortable and not happy. Being married was something I was not something I wanted to be. I didn’t really realize this until I got divorced.
When my home life improved dramatically I knew that I had done the right thing. Getting divorced is a scary thing. You don’t know what is going to happen. You just have to go through it and hope for the best. Luckily things have worked out well.
I am so much happier now. I can’t really even compare my life before and my life now. It is like I have a new zest for life. Before I was stuck in a dead end relationship. Stuck doing the same thing over and over again. Now I can do what I want when I want to. I can spend my money on the stuff I care about. I am again the master of my destiny. My future is now mine to make.
I am still stuck as the same boring dead end job. But it is now much more bearable. I complain about my work but it is actually pretty good; all things considered. I think most people feel the same way about their job. It is a boring monotonous thing they have to do to make money. No one is particularly excited about their job. It is just something they tolerate and do so they can make the money they need to survive and enjoy life.
We are not slaves; we get paid. But we all slaves to the paycheck. We need that money. Most of our lives are spend trying to earn what we need to survive and prosper. Aside from sleeping it is the activity we spend the majority of our time on. Capitalism is good at getting its workers to go to work because there is so much cool shit to get and enjoy. Face it if we were just trying to survive we would have to work a lot less. Instead we are trying to have and enjoy a bunch of cool shit. That is why we have to work so much. Remember that the next time you are bitching about your job. Sure it sucks but you get to do a lot of cool shit because of it.
I have gotten off track. My divorce has been a good thing. That is what I wanted to say. I hope your all well. Thanks for reading this. Take care and make sure to enjoy your life.
