I am finding myself and delving into who I really am. I am removing myself from the drama and putting my focus on my daughter and I's future. We are both finding happiness and since removing myself I am getting along better with my ex. I found out from a friend yesterday that his s/o is still spreading lies and going to the extremes to keep contact when she shouldn't. I have watched her constantly stir the kettle and hold other people at fault. I don't want to be that person. I don't want to play victim, I'd rather rise from the ashes and find my truest form. I am feeling more connected to my spirituality and cutting my circle smaller. I don't want to feel the pain anymore. I don't want my every move under scrutiny. I want to feel freedom and to know that I have done everything I can to find happiness and peace. It is sad that you must sometimes cut your circle but it also understandable.
