My husband and I have been divorced for about one month. I've been out of the house for 8 months. My ex-husband is an alcoholic and we could no longer live the way we were. I was the one to leave, so in his eyes, everything is my fault. He spread lies about me to family and friends so that he would look like the victim. I have taken the high road and have not told my side of the story to anyone besides my best friend. It's been difficult, but over time, people are beginning to see him for what he is.
I talk to my ex routinely because we have two children together. I think that he is a good person...deep down inside. He was my best friend for over 20 years and I do miss things about him, but I also know that I made the right choice to end the marriage. However, he can't move one. Every time we talk, he tells me how much he loves me and that he will do whatever it takes to get me back. I tell him that it's not going to happen, I try to end the conversation, but he doesn't quit! He cries constantly and I know this affects the time he spends with our children. What can I do? I care about this man and I don't want to see him hurting, but I can't continue to go on this way.
