Haiku – He’s getting engaged

It came as a shock

But it really shouldn’t have

A new tale begins

My ex husband of 16 years called to tell me that he’s getting engaged this week to his girlfriend of the past 3 years. Although, I think it was very thoughtful of him to let me know as we still have many mutual friends and our family members still talk, I’m still processing this news.

I wish him happiness, but I want that kind of happiness for me too. It’s time to reassess where I’m at and where I want to be.

  1. I have to second the comment from above. You don’t need his kind of happiness, you need to find YOUR kind of happiness and it clearly wasn’t with him. So you can reassess but you and only can make you happy, the rest will fall in place.

  2. You guys are absolutely right. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want to be happy too. It’s been 4 years since our split and 1.5 years since the divorce and I know more about myself than I ever have, but I’m still not as happy as I want to be. I do not feel fulfilled.

    • It’s hard especially when you hear about the “other” person that use to be a part of you for so long. I’m with you, I”m not as happy as I want to be, I feel stuck somehow and am trying to navigate everyday life to find that happiness. Don’t give up, you will find happiness as soon as you are able to figure out exactly what you want out of life as a single and not a pair.
