one day at a time

It’s good you can come on here and share how you feel Serenity. You’re not moaning at all.
Look at the issues he has left you with even after all this time.
When we separate from our abusers it takes a different type of energy compared to living in the aftermath. The practicalities of divorce and finances can be she stressful. Like you he’s left me in a complete mess financially and there are times I feel totally overwhelmed at having to deal with it all.
And I can totally relate to how your mind can remember the cruelties. Out of the blue I have flashbacks to horrible events and vile words. Then I remember how he would tell me to lighten up and stop being so miserable.
How horrible for you too that he involves your children in his mind games. Yet another way for him to continue to annoy you from a distance.
I sense your tiredness, which is totally understandable. Look at what you’ve come through and still are going through! But you are an incredibly strong and insightful woman.
Hope you can take some time for yourself, to give yourself a bit of an emotional respite.
Take care. ((Hugs)) x
