Divorce

Stand up

My life in Paris was beautiful but had to come to an end for I had encountered a man. He was amazing, at first. He took me out to dinner and he also was someone working oversees for a short period of time. He had to leave again but came back to visit me. When he came to visit me again I thought he was amazing. Such a caring man. He also was from the states, Chicago to be exact so he convinced me to come back. I didn’t think much of it as he was a gentlemen. But in time I found he had

Divorce

The process

We tried many things, for example going into therapy, talking with his friends and more. Turned out even though he asked me to come with him to the states, asked me to marry him and asked me to move in with him he wasn’t ready. He didn’t wanted the commitment, but then I couldn’t figure out why he asked me all those things. After meeting his friends privately they started to open up that they really liked him but it was better for me to end it. They were on my side exactly, and felt sorry for me. We arranged a meeting, also with some

Experiences

Back in the day

My life was going quite good back then, although I can’t complain about my current life. When I was still a young girl my parents took me to places and I caught the travel fever. From then on it was my dream to live and work abroad. To work in another country and call myself an expat. When people asked me it was always nice to answer that I was going to work internationally. The word alone made me goosebumps in a positive manner. So 20-somewhat me, little Johanna, took the advice from anyone around me. And the most frequent subject I heard was get yourself an international health insurance. The fact that I would be working in one place but be traveling to several made me understand I should find a good one.

Family

We have a new family member

I figured me being away all the time and my son seeing his father every other weekend we should get another family member. I was not yet ready to start dating due to my busy life and what kind of image that would have on my son. I think many other woman have that out there. Even though you almost desire to meet someone new your child will always be number one. And also another problem that their might be, is feeling rejected.

It’s going good

Life has just got a lot better. I worked very hard the last period and showed as much dedication as I could possible do. First at the security job which I somehow very much like. My colleagues finally started seeing a ‘woman’ on the same level as a man, which is nice. It’s only around 2 hours a night and I can easily sign up when I have time, I will be there. It’s something extra and I can write a bit which always calms me down. The other is being a nurse. Apparently patients having talking great things to my colleagues behind my back.
