Definitely need to let go of these thoughts of betrayal, resentment, et al. if I want peace. Question: do I truly want peace or do I want to hold on to my grievances? Even if I was wronged, so what?

I'm really glad you post here. Your perspective is always encouraging. Makes me try to see the positive side of things when I'm all cranky and stressed in the morning.

A good 5.Day had its stresses& disappointments, but I'm also grateful for the challenges & setbacks. I need them to train my spirit, to develop my equanimity, to practice patience. Love games.

Starts off with attorneys discussing terms. After about 3m, I say, 'How about we begin with a little civility and common courtesy. I feel like a piece of furniture. I have a need for respect that isn't being met.' LOL!

Her attorney was offended and he stepped out of room with her. 'I express my needs and you take offense?' I say as they exit. I work with kindergarteners who resolve conflicts better than that.

I have no respect for my wife's decision, the divorce process, or a culture than encourages the selfish pursuit of ones happiness over commitment to marriage and family.

Love 1

That said, I enjoyed sparring with them. It was kind of like boxing, but with words. In retrospect, tho, I only watered conflict... & still didnt get needs met. Not wise. Oh well.

Divorce attorneys profit off conflict. Oops. That was dumb.

Sounds like a complicated situation. Wish I knew more about the process, in order to give advice, but it seems you are learning fast as you go.

it's an education. Tuition is $300 per hour. My wife chooses this over mediation.

Jeff M

Wow. Well, good for you for pointing out the ridiculousness of the situation. I suppose that's far better perspective than bemoaning the state of affairs. Granted, the lawyer won't care, but perhaps your wife will think about it.

Sorry you have to go through this!

Decent day despite poor sleep. Likely cause for restless nights sleep: overthinking upcoming meeting with divorce attorneys. Understandable. Managing day so far with composure.

Mood slightly discolored, but can identify causes. To interpret state with thought from this energy would intensify it. Another option: disengage & just be with the funk, letting it dissolve naturally
Love 1
3d ·

Causes: lack of sleep; mild illness; moderate, but temporary, stress; coffee (provokes anxiety); fasting; lack of exercise due to fast; glass of wine yesterday (depressant); not enough time or solitude to quiet mind.

Love 1

To intensify would be to think: what's wrong with me? why am i feeling this way? I just want to be happy! Not this again. I want this to go away... ad nauseum. better to just go to bed early, meditate, chill.

Cindy, our moods do have a musical quality come to think of it-sometimes minor chord stuff, sometimes cacophony, sometimes melodic, funky or bluesy. each breath is a note.
