One tough situation

This is probably the hardest, most honest thing I have ever had to share with everyone.

My husband and I have decided to seperate. Well actually I am the one who has asked for the divorce, but he is respecting my decision and we have both decided to go forth with a divorce.

I have nothing but respect for him, he is a good father to my boys and he is a great guy. We have just grown so apart over the years and are totally different people now.

This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life. I literally have to start all over again as I am still in the process of finding a job. Now I have to look for an affordable apartment (yeah right!), as well as things to put in my apartment.

Things are going as good as they could. Our children are our first and number one priority and it is for that fact alone that we are doing our best to remain friends. It is hard, as much resentment and anger loom over us but we know that in the end, it will be the best choice.

I only want to share this information with all 5 of you because it is something that is obviously a major thing in my life at the moment. I am not looking for any pity as I am the one who has asked for this. My life tends to be an open book for all those interested.

Wow Courtney! I'm so sorry to hear this. I can only wish you the best and tell you to follow your heart. This won't be easy on you but if you know you are doing the right thing you'll come out on the other side of this a far better person. Whatever the outcome, stay strong and Godspeed.
