leaving wouldn't be a quick process once i knew i was
leaving cody um yeah scared of
stress but don't hesitate none so it was almost like i decided i was going to quit and then i looked at myself and had to figure out at the end where i wanted to be i just did the steps to get there and there was no
hesitation i just i took the next step i did the next step to the next step she said no i don't want you to stay in my room anymore she's like my room is a special place for me and nothing special happens there for us i'm like alright well first she i said he's not welcome in my bed anymore i just said you know you really don't want to be in my bed with me and you don't want to be in my room so i don't want you there i need you to not stay with me anymore he's like that I can't stay there and I said no , you can't stay in my bed and you can't stay in my room you can come hang out with the girls but then you have to go you can't stay so we did it and then we didn't speak again for weeks after that and the next time we came he came upstairs like what are you? doing I'm like you don't have permission I have to go you're going it's like where am I supposed to sleep I'm like oh I don't know do you have other houses to go to and he says if you need to sleep the couch I'm like no actually he's fine in others monogamous relationships I'd have to sleep on the couch I'm like you have other places you can go so shortly after that I boxed her things up and that's what you know it was actually a pretty good conversation, it wasn't too bad, I just said look you don't want this anymore I don't want this anymore you need to let me go and he said what do you mean? i'm like me i have to go i can't stay here anymore you're not happy i'm not happy and i'm moving to utah too moving the whole thing with the house was disgusting and what to do about it but he was fine you know it's a tough conversation but he was well it was not bad it was honest it was brutally honest but i'd rather be brutally honest than pretend it's going to work it's not going to work so let's figure out how to move on and i always wanted to do it gracefully.
I remember realizing that I'm going to get a divorce, it's going to be public and that's not. I don't want to say that the public will know what that means is that my kids will know that my kids will always see how I behave, so I decided that if I'm going to do this, I'm going to be public, I have to do it gracefully and just do it as nicely as possible, so I always thought you knew what didn't matter. I remember planting my feet a few times in the conversation and just taking a deep breath, grounding myself with grace, listen to my heart and move the conversation forward and I said. yes you know we were married for 26 years so i'm sure you can be nice it's hard right i think divorce is hard divorce sucks i'm ending a 26 year relationship i am who i am today because of the decisions i made while i was married to cody so we were great friends before we married you i know i just hope we can eventually be great friends again.
