Guess what? I was invited to a birthday party. 🙂
I talked a little bit before about my ex-husband’s side of the family and how after the divorce, they divorced me as well.
My ex-husband and I struggled for well over a year to get on the same page, and I’m happy to say that we finally are. We remained cordial, for the most part, throughout this whole ordeal and have actually become friends, which I wanted 2 years ago, but it was toooooo soon. I talk about it in THIS video and THIS ONE. Check ’em out if you haven’t done so. Please. 🙂
Even though we’ve been on speaking terms since the divorce and have even ended up at some of the same gatherings, functions…shoot, I’ve even invited him to mine, he’s never invited me to any of his “family” gatherings. Until yesterday.
Why this is beyond EPIC
This is epic because, this says we are for real for real friends and that he has forgiven me for not only ending the marriage but for the way I ended it. **I talk about that in the other vids** It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. I totally handled that situation improperly, and I’ve told him so as well.
I was nervous at first but quickly settled in. Our daughter was shocked and happy to see me. She often asks why I don’t come around anymore. I explain to her why. So it felt good to see that big smile on her face.
I exchanged hugs with a few folks and even had a long conversation with a childhood friend who told me I’ll always be her “girl”, but she doesn’t approve of my lifestyle because she doesn’t believe in homosexuality. She’s entitled. Whatever…
Overall, I had a good time. It wasn’t the party that made it great, it was the invitation.
Enjoy the rest of your day, and don’t forget, in order to heal, you gotta keep it real.
