The Reluctant Divorcee

Brought to you by SA Law

I’ve never considered writing a blog before; it’s the kind of thing other people do. I’m more of a fact-based person but things are so all over the place at the moment that writing down my thoughts and feelings suddenly feels like the right thing to do. It helps me to organise my thoughts a bit, and who knows, someone else might read this who’s going through the same thing. So here it is: My blog, by Rebecca Green.

Focus on what I can control

I am writing again. It is remarkably therapeutic to put my thoughts and feelings into words and share them like this. Reading back through the earlier blogs I can see when I let my emotions get the better of me – I know that really doesn’t help. I need to keep focused on my family. The children were upset yesterday and I know that they were picking up my vibes.

I had a long chat with Mum earlier. I didn’t want to tell her about “Amelia” as I thought she’d start criticising James again, but she was surprisingly gentle. Her advice was to let it all out, scream if I need to but then focus again on what I can control.

The next step is to call Marilyn about what to put in the petition about James’s unreasonable behaviour, hand over my marriage certificate and start thinking about where we are going to live.
