Have anyone moved away since your separation/divorce? I am

Have any of you with children moved away since your separation/divorce? I am currently living about 30 min from my stbx and my daughter. But I don't think I can stay here if I want to rebuild my life. I am considering moving to a more vibrant town about 30 min from here. That would put me about an hour from my daughter. I only get her 1 day on the weekends (don't ask) so it will be a pain for that day...but...I gotta work on me, too, right? Thoughts?

Also I would say demand to be in on doctor appointments and things like that, especially well visits. Anything you can do to assert as her father. Make sure you're the emergency contact at daycare, all that.

@David1971 move if that makes you feel better, I tried to move out of state twice, 2019 was the closest, but God does things for a reason, I have to turn down the job. And it was valid reason to turn down, so what I am saying is, go start planning for the move, if it’s successful, then you’re meant to move away and if it’s not meant to be, there will always be a reason why it won’t happen. Someday when you are healed, you will feel what others say here that “who cares about how the ex feels” it’s easy to say that, but for the longest time, I did worry about that. It’s innate in us to feel that way because they were our partners. My psychiatrist(I’m not crazy lol) told me, the mind always does what’s familiar. In order to stop that, we have to unfamiliarize ourselves by replacing it with new train of thought. New perspective and thinking. There is one thing I learned from hypnotherapy, keep on telling yourself what you want to be and you will become who you want to be. The mind is so powerful it will believe and do what you tell it. And train your subconscious as well. Say things as if it’s already happening. Like when I wake up I tell myself I am Happy, I am over things, I love myself. Say things to yourself present tense, your mind is very powerful, it will do what you tell it to do. Try it, there is nothing to lose.
