I just want to know if anyone else feels the same way I do now. My husband and I are in the process of a separation/divorce https://onlinedivorcer.com/county-specific-resources/texas/divorce-in-tarrant-county, and I am moving into an apartment in two weeks. We are still friends and things are very friendly. Unfortunately, going through a lot of life-changing events throughout our marriage, we have become apart rather than together. For several years now, we have been like buddies/neighbors rather than romantic partners. We have come to the conclusion that we are both unhappy and need to separate in order to be most real.
This is where the guilt comes in - our five year old daughter. I feel very guilty and just terrible that our daughter is going to go through this. I'm terrified that we're spoiling her. I'm terrified that it will leave a scar for life. I'm terrified that not only will she suffer, but she will suffer because of my selfishness.
