Sorry to be so late in responding to your thread. The weekends have been really busy for me lately, because of work, and I haven’t had a chance to get to the forum until now.
I am glad you posted about
the closure conversation, and I’m especially glad your son is doing so well. I am really impressed with his attitude…his whole state of mind about
this…and I’m thankful that he is aware of all the facts about
his ex (the desire to travel 3 months of the year, the nomadic lifestyle w.r.t. jobs, the lack of desire for children – how could she not tell him before now?!?!). Really, I am disappointed in her for not being forthright about
these things sooner. However, it is water under the bridge now, and I’m sure these revelations have only served to confirm for your son that this is not the right woman for him. It’s evident that he has moved on, and I’m so very glad for this. He seems like a strong person who has his head together, and I know he will move forward from this and create a new and better life for himself.
It’s perfectly understandable why you would feel sad, Aurora. It’s a time of loss and change, and that’s difficult for most of us. I hope that your time with your therapist will help you, and I also hope that the support and caring of your friends here will lift you up as well. You’re a wonderful and loving person….it’s obvious by your posts to us and by your devotion to your family….and you deserve to feel happy and at peace again. Take good care of yourself, and know that we’re all here for you.
