Same sort of situation and 5 years on I still havn’t got over it but it does get easier.

Im sure you had your reasons to take such a big step and clearly staying together would have had a negative effect on the children.

Unfortunetly not all families stay under one roof but your children are lucky to still have both parents in their lives, my children havnt seen their dad for 5 years because he never bothered and believe me that hurts even more.

My advice would be to always try to look at the positives and always look at what you do have rather then what you dont. Although its hard (i know because iv been there) try to not revisit the past and think about ‘what if’s’.  Accept what has now happened and think of ways to move forward.

Im not saying this will definately help or if it is even what you want but I found getting into a relationship helped me. I happened to meet someone who iv been with for 4 years now.

 

Hope thats helped and I do hope you find peace and happiness
