Divorce help! I know I am making the right decision... So why do I feel so bad?
after years of listening to verbally abusive tirades I finally got serious about divorce. filing papers tomorrow. I should feel relieved but I'm a mess of anxiety. my husband is crying, asking for second chances, and admitting all his wrong doing, which he would never do before....but I'm trying not to let it change my resolve. It took a lot to get my heart to this place. I know he would go right back to his old ways. I've educated myself with books, and know how the cycles of abuse go. So is this normal? I just feel awful seeing him crying and I'm not feeling any better hearing a sincere apology. I could think about how terrible he treated me, but? I'm worried about how to care for two young children and loosing financial security. And how hard it will be to be away from the children (for both of us) during visitations. Any advice appreciated.
