So the sale of the marital home fell through today and stbx emailed me "Sorry to cause you so much stress." Probably the only apology he will ever give me.
It triggered intense reconciliation fantasies. I thought I was getting to acceptance of the divorce. but a few kinds words in an email and I am a mess. I had a very strong memory this evening of being in our old house in the evening with my two step-daughters, after dinner and they were doing homework. It was a memory of how peaceful and loving our home once was.

The death of hope was one of the hardest and most painful aspects of this whole thing for me.
When it happened it was agony. I'm wincing at the memory of it now.
It is far easier when they are being monsters.
I'm so sorry you are hurting. I hate the dips on this damned rollercoaster. An upswing is coming soon.
Sending all of the love and strength I can muster to Phoenix1 and her family.

Oh, honey. I'm so sorry the sale fell through. Hoping you are soon entertaining even better offers.

(((abigail))) Your DDay is very recent I see. So easy to slip into the "bargaining" phase of grieving at this point.
It's intensely painful to let go of 'what was' and face what is to be.
You will get there eventually and find out things about yourself you never dreamed of.
Big huge hugs.

Oh I can totally relate to this. Any little crumb I got from him would just wreck me.
Of course you know you are worth so much more than what little drips and dregs he teases you with.
One day at a time. Just deal with today. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn't here yet.
