I’ve been thinking, thinking about my situation since the divorce was final. This was divorce number three and it was the final. No more, I’m too old to consider another marriage nor do I want one. Some of you are aware I have Type 2 Diabetes along with a nasty heart condition. That said I don’t need anymore aggravation.
Overall, my life is much more peaceful, simpler and I decide solely what to do with my time. Life is lighter and more enjoyable. This is a choice. I choose to be happy and not allow the bad things that have happened in terms of money and other bad choices we made together, tear me apart.
I was taken for a ride.
But it won’t ruin my life because I have chosen to move beyond the negative to find the good things that await me in the future. I’ve thought to find a more specific reason for why we divorced. It comes down to one thing that has happened to so many for so long. We simply grew apart.
She is still very career orientated, I am basically ready to throttle back (but can’t just yet). I will move back home to Michigan the very moment it becomes possible. Northern Lower Michigan calls me home. She want’s absolutely nothing to do with Michigan. Too cold, too cloudy and too humid. So be it. We grew apart on many levels.
So glad I’m single again, and single I will remain.
