After 27 years I have finally left my alcoholic, narcissisti

After 27 years I have finally left my alcoholic, narcissistic, controlling, abusive, and manipulative husband. We’ve been separated for over a year, state law, and am really close to getting it finalized. I have ptsd due to what he’s put me through over the years. I’ve not been able to work due to this. The uncertainty of what is ahead is scary. We still have to get through mediation to decide financial division and alimony but even if I were to end up with nothing I would still win with not having him much in my life(three adult kids). I don’t know if I will ever really trust another man. He had me fooled for our whole marriage and even had his girlfriend talk to me to tell me they were just “friends”....I believed it because I wanted to. However, I am not a victim but a survivor. I have great things ahead of me and I have God by my side to fight this battle that will soon entail. I just want it over with.

@chrissy_lane good for you. I was married to a similar guy as you.. He did not cheat but he did cause a lot of emotional pain. It takes a long time to heal. I have been divorced for one month and am just taking this one step at a time
