I am going to add some as well...
-Having total freedom. I can go somewhere with my kids and not worry about calling to check in all the time, my XH being mad because I was late, didn't bring him food, or whatever else he could find to be mad about.
-Only have to worry about myself and my two kids. Don't have an adult slob (XH) to clean up after anymore. I don't have to pick up his wet towels, clean his dirty underwear, wash his dirty dishes, etc.
-Have grown a lot closer to my DC. We laugh, we smile, we play, we are carefree...our home is now a happy and cheerful place instead of a tense and chaotic one.
-I am starting to focus on myself more than I did when I was married. I have dreams and goals and plans for the future.
-I love not having the constant disappointment and anger of XH refusing to go anywere with us, spend time with the kids, help around the house etc. It feels like a huge burden has been lifted not having to deal with that. I know I am the one that has to do things now and it is nice just depending on myself and no one else.
-I can have crushes again. I feel youthful and like a teenager again. I am not ready to date yet but I look forward to the day when I am ready and now feel like I will hold out for someone that is wonderful.
-I love having every room in my house be girly. I am all about pink!
-I love that when my kids are not with me I can have complete silence (if I want to) and can relax, sleep, read, clean, do homework, watch tv, go on MDC etc without having XH complain, yell, start fights, make messes etc.
-the pride I feel in that the fullness of my life and my DCs lives are my doing. Our lives are now happy, healthy, and loving. We have a totally different life than when I was with XH.
-In the car and in my house I can listen to the kind of music that I want!!! And I can dance with my kids without XH grumping about us being hyper and loud or yelling at us to be quiet.
-I LOVE my garden, my craft projects, my books, my journals etc. It is all mine and no one complains about it, or puts my interests down.
-I love the growing confidence, inner peace, happiness, etc that I feel and that my kids feel. It is priceless and everyday looking at my kids laughing and smiling and loving life reminds me that I did the right thing in leaving my XH.
