Anniversary of the divorce

I had almost forgotten about it, until someone on a forum mentioned it was the 2 year anniversary of their divorce. I immediately thought back to what mine was and I realized it was 3 years ago today.
It's hard to believe that time has flown. We've been divorced longer than we were married. Yet, I feel like we get along better now than we did then. Funny how that works sometimes.
I'm in such a different place now that I don't even recognize the person I was. In some ways, I'm glad he had the affair. It gave me the strength to end it. It gave us both the chance to move on and be better people. It gave us the chance to be happier too.
I will never regret my marriage. It gave me a wonderful son, and it taught me a lot about myself. I feel like I am a better person for the experience.
