Divorced and lost
I was divorced after 16 years this year it was final in may. I meet a wonderful woman 3 days after it was final and her divorce had been final the same time . Well the thing everyone had warned me about happened next. We fell fast and hard we meet kids,planned marriage the whole 9 yards.Two weeks ago she ended it because it was all too much and I know she was right I felt it too but I was to scared to stop.
Since it ended I have realized I never had a chance to grief the loss of my wife of 16 years. I spent the divorce process trying to salvage my home and my relationship with my children and I didn't have time to.
All I know is its very hard right now my mind is back and forth between missing my ex-wife and missing and feeling guilt over the woman I spent the summer with. I know I'm not the first person to make these mistakes but it sure feels like I messed up really bad.But I have 3 children and I have to keep going and hope it gets better soon.
