“Anticippointment.” I came up with a word “Anticippointment.” During the split, this was the time I was anticipating the Ex would step up to the plate and do the decent thing. Do the thing that made my life easier since he was the one leaving me.
I was anticipating that he would behave like a mature, adult man, and this anticipation of a good thing always, always resulted in my new word “Anticippointment.”
I needed to anticipate the disappointment that he was not going to behave like a mature adult towards me, and do these things. Even though they would make my life easier, and he was the one that had destroyed our couple-hood. But no. The answer was always, no. No-No-No-No-No.
I began to anticipate it. Anticipate the endless amount of noes or the non-answer of silence. This was my Anticippointment. I urge you all as you go through the splitting of everything up and the final ending of your marriage thing.
You must understand that Anticippointment is real and it’s probably going to happen to you. Even when they could do the decent nice thing.
They don’t. They’ve already moved on. They literally don’t even want to hear from us anymore. So, protect your heart. Know that certain things are not going to go your way. Even though they seem like the easiest, simplest, most convenient things, he’ll probably just say, “No.”
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery.
