Divorce is a difficult process. Heartache takes time to heal. Self reflection and love from friends and family is encouraged. Fortunately, Khloe has a large close-knit family to shower her with love and support. Through social media outlets, Khloe has kept herself busy promoting the family’s businesses and her own brand as well as keeping in the company of family.
It has been well over a year, since the decision was made to dissolve my marriage. Now reflecting there is a cycle that I went through and my journey continues. I was faced with various emotions. This included the feeling of failure, understanding and acceptance of my situation, followed by empowerment, relief, coming to terms with my new reality, depression, regaining independence and seeking happiness from within. While, I am comfortable with my status and have move forward with my life the various emotions resurface from time to time. This could be sparked by life’s hurdles living as a divorcee. The journey in accepting a break-up, divorce or demise of any relationship that is a major part of your life can linger. However, moving on and not allowing the past to define you is imperative. When a situation does not work out, it was not meant to be. Cherish the positive memories and use the experience to build you into a stronger person. Grow from past mistakes and decisions and help to empower your independence as a happily divorcee.

According to People.com, Kris Jenner said that since the separation from estranged husband Bruce Jenner hew relationship with him has improved. This was discussed during an interview at the #cirocthenewyear anti-drinking and driving pledge party. She cited about her separation: “We’re Great. He’s great and I’m great. We are such good friends. Sometimes people are just better apart and have better energy.” She also mentions that there is no talk of divorce, but the two of them are getting along better since separation. She also states “We don’t bicker as much. We were starting to sound like some old sitcom from the 50’s. I listened to myself and didn’t like me. Everyone is happier.”
My Insights on My Relationship With Ex-Husband
I can absolutely relate to Kris’s comments. When reflecting on my current relationship with my ex-husband, I can say we get along better now our marriage is over. We have established a great co-parenting relationship and friendship. We accepted each other’s quirks and differences. We agreed to disagree and do not have to deal with each other different points of views anymore. There is nothing driving each other crazy. The arguments and debates are minimal.
While married, I did not like who I was becoming. I would become frustrated easily over every small matter, masking over the bigger issues in our marriage. The whole household would feel the effects of my mood swings. The cool down-to-earth chick that I was known for was evolving into a spiteful shrew. When a situation is not making you the best person you can be, you have to exit to find your inner-peace. Likewise for my ex-husband. He also transformed to a very different man from the laid-back gent I married seven-years ago. There was so much tension, we had disagreements that blew up to large ominous clouds haunting our marriage.
Now divorced, we can come together for a cocktail before he relieves the babysitter for his weekend with the kids. We discuss plans for the weekend, joke about dating life as a divorcee, our careers and go our separate ways. He also has read a few articles on my blog and while hesitant, he mutters a few slurs of positive feedback. We both are encountering this divorcee journey, while separately we can both identify with the benefits and obstacles of the single life with children. Many of the key differences that were factors of ending our marriage still exists….but they are our problems we need to figure out together anymore. For that, we are able to come as friends and more importantly establish a great co-parenting relationship for the sake of our sprouts.
