my "anniversary" is coming up pretty soon. i would have been married 22 years. how freaking weird is that?
some years(i have been divorced over 10)the day flies by without notice, but this year, i have definitely noticed.
its an interesting place to be; i look at my marriage almost like it happened to someone else. i can look at it for exactly what it was-the good and the bad. the terrible things he did no longer have the power to hurt me in the slightest. its been that way for a long while and its a pretty good place to be.
since we never had children together, there was no reason to have any further contact and i have completely lost track of him. i have heard a few things here and there over the years and there have been a few "sightings", but nothing concrete. i am ok with that.
i am pretty certain if i ran into him, i would be more that civil, but completely uninterested in any conversation or "catch up". i am confident that i know what kind of life he is living and i would not want to be part of that in any way.
when people ask how long i have been divorced and when i tell them they ALWAYS ask how often i see or talk to him. when i say NEVER, they always seem surprised. why is that? does everyone keep in contact with their ex? am i weird because i dont?
