Having been ‘ engaged in litigation ‘ for some years now, with one thing and another, I decided yesterday to disengage.
I gave up on the fight for what my ex wife owes me, on the basis that she is absolutely not going to pay me anything anyway ( yes, she’s a lawyer herself and she knows the way the system works ) , and I gave up ‘ fighting for ‘ access to my children, on the basis that if they don’t want to see me they won’t anyway. They know my email address so that ought be enough. They have somewhere ‘ nice’ to live, have their high maintenance mum to look up to, and have Pringle as a new Dad, so it’s not so bad for them overall – plenty of kids are far, far worse off. I have pictures of them on my walls so I remember what they look like…
I now only have my medical negligence legal battle ahead, and that’s going to last for years, so not that exciting or pressing.
Yesterday I unpacked all sorts of stuff, including lots of wedding photos. What do you do with that stuff when you’ve got divorced? I’ve offered it to the Ex but had no reply, so I’ll give it a few days then throw it all out if I don’t hear anything more. I don’t have room for junk in my place.
I feel a great sense of peace where there wasn’t peace before, so that’s good.
Progress, for sure.
