I agree that the dream is hard to let go of. For me, it's kind of embarrassing to accept that i've only been married for a little over a year, yet i'm filing for divorce. It especially has a way of making me feel awkward when I run into people I haven't seen since stbx and I separated.
I've also realized that grief is not linear, or at least mine isn't. I feel better/fine for several months, and then inexplicably I feel awful again. It's more like a spiral upwards, passing what seems like the same stage of grief more than once, but from a slightly different angle.

Our divorce should hopefully be closing this week and although that will be a relief I am having a hard time realizing it is over. Like you my soon to be ex was not a great husband or father but still I miss him. I have been really lonely and am excited but scared to start this new chapter in my life. I am just trying to take things one day at a time and am trying to realize it is ok to hurt and to cry because I shouldn't expect for things to magically get better overnight. It is just a slow healing process I guess...at least for me. I think it is hard also because DH is not showing any emotion and is acting like he can't stand me and is so glad we are over...and here I am still sad and crying and having my ups and downs.
