People see how R and I act around each other and they say, "Wow. You guys make divorce look easy."
Most of the time, I just smile and say, "We're doing what's best for our boys."
However, it hasn't been easy.
The guessing and second guessing.
The feeling of worthlessness.
The stone face to prove that you are fine.
The pulling yourself up because up is the only direction you can go.
The belief that you will make it through.
It hasn't been easy.
So when a friend is wanting to divorce his wife and tells her, "It will be fine. We will be fine. Divorce is easy, just look at R. and Dawn."
It takes ALL of me to not shake him and tell him that it is ANYTHING but easy.
Winter is coming and I feel it in my bones.
