Reply To: Newly single, mental abusive ex
That’s because you are grieving for the marriage you hoped you would have. It takes a while to feel better.
But your children are no longer witnessing the aggression and nastiness, they aren’t learning that sort of behaviour is acceptable. Your ex may have a new girlfriend but he doesn’t love her, she’s there to clean and cook & keep his bed warm. Soon she will be feeling as low and depressed as you were.
Give it some time.Focus on making your home a happy calm stress-free place for your children, and in a month or two you will catch yourself feeling happy, I promise you. Hang on in there. It will get better x
