Today is my nonniversary. The non-anniversary of my wedding day.

This is so much better than that.

Pushing through all the mess of extracting myself from a marriage I never should have gotten into is so much better than having stayed in a place where I didn’t belong. A place where I was losing my sense of self.

Today, I may not know exactly where I’m going, but I am intact. No part of me is slipping away.

This is so much better than that.
