My X wants to be friends. I am trying.
I realize that by not forgiving him, I only hurt myself. I think that I have forgiven, but then I will remember some of the terrible things that he did to me and said to me during the divorce, and the anger returns. Is that normal after all of these years (5)?
Continuing a friendship with him does make things easier for our children and grandchildren. We can be in the same room for a school event, for instance.
I am currently in a relationship wtih another man; I have moved-on (at least I feel that way most of the time).
Tomorrow is my birthday and my X has invited me for a birthday lunch today.
Anybody else have experiences/thoughts about friendship after divorce?
