Today i was reminded why we have to let go of toxic people. I know my ex got a reminder today of why we divorced and i did too. We don’t talk often but it’s our middle son’s graduation this Saturday so we’ve had reason to. I know playing the conversation back he’s thinking still same old story of overreacting and too much parent (or with our children grandparent) involvement.
I’m at least grateful i can see his side of it all and realize we just weren’t a good fit on so many levels. I can see how in my unmedicated mind i wanted so bad to be loved and have two parents for my children like i do. Sometimes those dreams aren’t possible and that’s ok. I now on most days love myself and that was a discovery i had to make without him.
