I just finished the 48 Laws of Power (Divorce could easily be in the title) and I will be applying them as I will kill the puppy soon. I have just been reflecting over the year and even looking back further I am sick at my old self. I know looking through the new lenses is what is allowing the criticism but damn its eye-opening.
Moving forward, as I will be returning home, I ask for those that killed the puppy how did you do it in a way that you got an equal or high ground before dropping papers?
How did you maintain frame and also minimize the threat of DV based of AWALT. StBX hasn't moved forward with anything. She is moving out and pretty much I will be going home to an empty house and new life.
I am seeing both sides of this as I am leaning more towards enthusiastic and excited about it at the same time I am thinking about my daughter and how it will affect her. The wife is thinking everything is cordial but after seeing video of Chad putting my daughter into my wife's car that I paid for it is being held back. That was final, "Oh they are playing family...that's fucking cute".
I laid out the rules moving forward - 1. Kid first 2. Don't spread lies 3. Don't bring Chad or Stacy around the kid. <- My wife didn't go Medusa when I stated this. She agreed to it which amused me. Wanted to call her out there but moving forward it will be "mirroring" her until I get my footing and settled.
TLDR: For those that killed the puppy; how did you do it without being an autistic fuck and more sly "The Prince" in doing so?
