Post Divorce.

I am no longer a victim.

I survived something painful.

I am a survivor. I am still alive.

I know longer have to dwell on loss.

I can feel sadness but his absence taught me lessons about my own humanity.

I still occasionally cry but I no longer grieve what was.

I no longer suffer every last detail.

It’s no longer raw. The edges have softened.

My identity isn’t losing my husband.
