Salt in the Wound
If you’re recently divorced, here’s a little tip from me to you: don’t get a new laptop.
Why, you ask? Because you’ll be forced to transfer all your old pictures to your new computer.
I had an impulse to just shove them all in one folder and transfer the whole thing at once, but I didn’t. I looked through them all. Yeah, I maybe just indulged in a little bit of emotional wrist-cutting. It’s okay. I just checked, and I’m still all in one piece.
Yesterday was my 27th birthday. I struggle a little bit with the milestone days, still. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries. They’re not fun. I think I need to go through a full divorced year– get in a full cycle of life, before I can really feel whole and complete as a single mother, and not flinch when certain numbers come up on the calendar. It’s okay, though. I’m doing all right.
Seven years… they don’t just disappear with a couple of signatures. But it’s good to remember that it wasn’t all bad, that there were good times. I don’t want to pretend they didn’t happen.
And I know that even happier ones are coming. For all of us.Add a Comment
