There’s no easy way of saying this so I’l just get on with it. This is the end of Positively Divorced. Don’t worry, I’m still positive and very much divorced – new name, passport, driving license, flat, the whole thing!
It’s been quite a hard decision but it’s time to move on from writing about my divorce. It’s part of my process of continuing to be positive actually. Not remaining in the past but moving on. I don’t want to be ‘that divorced woman’ anymore. I’m me, mum to Doodle & Sketch, studying for my MA, living in a new city and making new opportunities.
This blog has been a god send and I’ve been continually amazed by the support I’ve received from complete strangers. I’ve lost a lot of ‘friends’ lately – too judgemental and small minded to look beyond the gossip and their own hang ups. I feel I have very few true friends actually.
Although I could end up feeling very cynical about love and relationships, in actual fact I’m more happy with myself, my own company and my own abilities than I have ever been in my life. Plus the warmth and friendship I’ve received from people who have read this blog has more than restored my faith in people. I just realise now that I need to be myself and not give a damn about what other people think anymore because I’ve done that and it’s only left me disappointed and feeling rejected.
Another ‘problem’ I’ve encountered is the issue of self editing. As more people I know found out about this blog, the more I worried what I was writing and how it could be taken. The point of the Positively Divorced blog was to freestyle my thoughts in black and white as a therapeutic exercise.
I am a blog nut. I love writing and I still want to be part the blogosphere, so there is another blog in the pipeline. It’s a ‘Mum Blog’ about my life with Doodle and Sketch in a new city, starting my new business and finishing my MA at University. Oh yes and did I tell you: I’m dating again …. 🙂
If you follow Positively Divorced on Twitter I’ll be putting the link there very soon to my new blog and will be following my favourites again under a new name.
Finally I just want to say, it’s been a pleasure and I thank you. And that’s a wrap.
