freedom, sweet freedom

Sunday, February 12, 2012

i left my husband thursday. some scary things went down friday night. now we're on the fast track to divorce. my church is behind me and assure me they will be there for me, and that i am still in good standing with them.

so, positive things for this weekend:
1. i'm free of relying on a man's approval for my mental and emotional well-being
2. i got an apartment yesterday and will be moving in tomorrow
3. bought some lovely furniture: couch, dining set, coffee table and new bed
4. excited about creating a peaceful space for me and my children, free of the clutter my husband cannot let go of
5. god is with me. god is good.

    CONGRATULATIONS! This big step, while frightening at times, will be looked upon in the future as a turning point for your life flourishing in the very near future. My prayers are with you as well, that you have the peace in your lives that you absolutely deserve. Be cautious in your dealings with him. Keep them factual and cordial, impersonal and unemotional. Just the facts and what you must discuss for the children as necessary.

    His life no longer needs to interfere with yours, but it will occasionally. Keep the barriers strong, the prayers flowing, and if you have an automatic lock and alarm on your car keychain, keep it close to you (on your nightstand) at night. A new place can often creep you out until you get accustomed to it, and being in control of that alarm will give you a head start on reacting to anything that may present itself in your new diggs.

    Introduce yourself to your new neighbors, and feel free to tell them your situation, but don't tell them too much. The painful details are yours for now, and you will discover soon enough which of these neighbors will blossom into a friendship instead of a mere acquaintance.

    With God, all things are possible, and you're about to truly witness His power, Amen!

    Be careful now. I am happy that you resolved this for your own good and the good of your children but he's likely to be very angry. Don't look back. Trust in God and have your church friends watching over you all. Wishing you all good things moving forward!

    My thoughts are with you! You might want to check out a domestic violence organization in your area. I work for one, and they can be really helpful. They help with emotional abuse and controlling relationships too, not just physical violence.

    Good luck!
