I've realized without any hesitation once my divorce was going to happen, that my life would be forever changed. With help from family and friends I got through that situation pretty well. Once past the divorce and all of it's emotional tugs, I escaped to the big city. It's been overall a positive cause some major issues needed to be dealt with on my own. My own issues of dependency and not facing my own fears, were the biggest demons I'd had even before I got married.
There's a saying that when it rains it pours. Well, in life it's interesting how certain obstacles just don't come at you one at a time. It's actually the exact opposite, where more than one thing can jump at you and it challenges the very boundaries we set... or at least what I set.
Has anyone noticed during their separation or post-divorce, certain life-changing events taking place in their lives? What kind of things have given you the most problems and what has helped transition certain painful situations?
Right now, I'm living in a furnished apartment my aunt helped me setup. Cheap rent, close to work, friends and family, etc... It's just not where I want to be, but know it's a transition to a better place. The other life-changing event would be my career. As stable as it has been through all the changes in my personal life, it's going to come to an end. My passion doesn't involve computers, but it's been my rock since college. Kinda scary to envision trying something new, but that's the biggest hurdle in my life right now.
