Thanks Girls.... Yes my kids are most important... And with the financial stress that the relationship caused (I funded 99% of the relationship), as well as the constant requests for change from him- I was not at my best either... And that too was not acceptable for my kids! They deserved to see me respected and adored along with them... They are boys and I want them to model proper treatment to women and this was no way to start!

I am already so much less stressed- despite the stack of mid-production wedding DIY projects stacked in my office, or the box of personalized OOT bags in the closet.... I will make use of them in a fun way (my girlfriend joked I needed to find a man with the same name as my ex, or a man who was soooo loving he would change his name- but I have better ideas haha).... At the end of the day- I have always succeeded and come out stronger and better- won't stop that trend now! My kids and I deserve for me to keep plugging along to true happiness!

I appreciate you all more than I can articulate. I will stick around here and offer my input as long as you will have me!

 

Yay!

So sorry to hear about this! You are an incredibly strong woman and I admire your strength and courage. You have to take care of yourself and your family first and do what's best for them. Especially when you've been in a relationship for so long it takes a lot to take an honest look at it and see it for what it really is. I love that you are still going and making it a celebration. One of my best friends had her wedding called off a month before and on her wedding day all of us girls hung out all day. At the end of the day we had a blast and it was actually one of our favorite times hanging out during that summer because we had so much fun. Wishing you the very best

Hey Kim,
I couldn't believe what I was reading, but I certainly admire your courage and strength. You rock. It's awesome that you didn't what you did and what you felt was right. Many people lie to themselves thinking that this is what they want and continue on. But you my friend were honest to not only to him but to yourself and your boys.
And yes happy if you stick around because you have great advice and input. We need as much as we can get. Stay strong and think that joining this group has given you the chance to bring many more friends into your life.

You guys are amazing and I am so humbled by your support. In any other forum the ugliness would have surely come out...but here I only feel your friendship and kindness. No wonder I like it here!

Kim- I can't wait to hear about your wedding!!!!!! Go enjoy your wedding week!

Kim, I somehow missed this thread before.  How courageous of you to make that decision and do what is best for you and your boys!  I am glad that you are still able to travel for the week and celebrate your friendships and family, and I can't wait to see what you have planned :).  Sending you a lot of hugs and love.  Your words and advice here have always been so helpful as I planned for my own wedding and I know other ladies here feel the same way.  I am glad to hear that you'll still be on the forum - this really is a fantastic community and you're one of the reasons why I continue to check in!
