It’s not that hard. We both did it. And we both hate doing things.
It’s also not that sad. Listen up. If you’re thinking about getting divorced or you’re in the process of getting divorced or you’re still crying over your divorce, you have to listen to us: It’s okay to be sad. For a little while. You can even grieve. But you must remember – do not grieve like someone has actually died. No one has died. Pull yourself together. On the grief spectrum, getting a divorce is somewhere in the middle, between a death in the family and when Trader Joe’s discontinues a product that you like.
The point is this–if you’re getting a divorce, you did not have a great marriage. The mourning period is short for shitty marriages.
Sure you can get drunk and cry and go on and on and on to your friends. But that gets old. And your friends will start to hate you. We recommend that you learn to laugh about it. WE CAN HELP YOU LEARN TO LAUGH AGAIN!
I filed for divorce today. I was married for 23 years. He left me for a 22 year old. The county clerk filed my papers and smiled and said “Have a great day!” Really?!? Really?!?
Your ex husband, we predict, will be miserable within 6 months around the time his new girlfriend gets her first period.
NOW, have a great day.
