It’s just about bedtime here, but I did want to tell you a quick little story.

Just now I decided to google ol’ whatshisface.  I know, I know—that way lies madness.

I had heard, through that damn grapevine, of course, that X would be making a cross-country move for a new job—back to the congregational life for him.  I had been checking here and there around the webosphere, just to know when he made his move (I want to be sure to know where he lives so that I can stay far away :)).

Well, I found it—he’s moved, there is mention made of Mrs. X and all I felt was…

relief.

I was just so relieved not to be there with him, living that life, playing that role again.  No angst, no conflicting emotions, just relief.

Good night, dear friends.

  1. I love this post.

    I am so glad you find yourself at peace. I hope with all of my being that that continues.

    It’s been a helluva few years, hasn’t it?

    Sorry for my absence — I’m a terrible bloggy friend. Your support still means the world to me. I promise to do better.

    Hugs,

    Though you would warn me if he was ever moving to a congregation in my area so I didn’t go to that shul, right?

  5. Yes. It’s always so nice when you realize that you feel nothing or feel peace or whatever related feeling knowing that part of your life is OVER. Good for you.

  7. I didn’t know how to feel about my ex remarrying, but I’ll tell you, relief was one of the main things rushing up to greet me.

  9. Neutral is a lovely place to be when aiming to completely extract from something/someone.
