Good question! I can do what I want, when I want, whenever I want. Not having to plan my day around him. Not having to put up with his grunts - his way of saying hello when he walked through the door. Not having to worry about cooking a gourmet meal every night. Not having to wash and iron for him. Not having to buy his clothes for him. Not having to be his slave, period. Socialising with friends and not having to worry about the time in case he was too tired. Not having to be his business advisor. Not having to consult with him about everything. Not having to answer to him or be accountable to him. Not listening to his illogical way of reasoning - it was one rule for him and another for everyone else. Even though I''m alone now, I was more lonely with him around. Just being free to be me.

I cant describe it in a word. If I had I would say Freedom..

But its more than just freedom. But if I have to sum it up and just use freedom. These are just a few things that I can think off that are related to freedom.

Its freedom to do what I want when I want with who I want and for how long.

Its freedom to make my one mistakes.

Its freedom to make decisions about me that affect only me.

Its freedom to work where I want for as long as I want or need to.

Its freedom to pursue a career. Any career that I want. And actually enjoy what I do.

Its freedom to eat what I want, when I want. I can eat chocolate cake in the bath if I want.

Now you may ask why dont married people have this freedom? C.

I love coming home to an atmosphere free house with happy children.
I love lying star shaped in bed with no grunty snoring or bottom burps!
I love not being barked at because I irritated him.
I love realising how many true friends I have.
I love that I can have ten dogs and fifty cats if I want.
I love that I was woken from a life of acceptance.
I love that I am emotionally free after years of abuse.
I love that I have been given a second chance at MY life.
I love I could go on adding to this list.....

I love the fact I have so many I loves.....
Being single isn''t so bad after all!

I wrote the following blog not too long ago - I was thinking about a similar thing.

Here it is:

]Declaration of independence[/url]

I''ve a lot to be thankful for.

I can do what I want, and work on myself if the way that does not attract any criticism. I can also push boundaries in a way I could never before.

Best,
JJ
