It's ComplicatedDivorce wasn’t something I expected to happen, much less write about. But I guess that’s how it goes for a lot of people. For me, writing my way through my divorce helped to process a lot of the emotions I felt. The “It’s Complicated” tag has all my posts over the months of processing.
