Today I feel very frighten of the future..........why???
Very shortly I am to attend my first collaborative meeting and whilst having meditated over all the scenarios one that comes freuqently to mind it that of "what to really expect"
We started the process of separating/divorcing on a "speakable/amicable (if that's possible) basis saying that we both wanted to do, above all else, what was right for the kids and, if possible, remain civil to each other throughout and after the process.
The kids are early twentys and are getting on with their lives - Grad Training Programme & the other completing her PGCE & for the time being living at home.
From a start position of being "amicable" I have just spent the last few weeks being completely & utterly stone-walled; in her eyes I do not even exist!!!
Nothing, absolutely nothing!!!!!
I have always said that I would do what is right for my two kids (and to be fair, so has she).......no matter what but my ever growing fear is that after the initial meeting when she realises that life will not be "a bed of roses
