People always assume that divorcing a doctor is like writing a cheque. I walked away from my marriage with nothing. Actually, if I consider how much of my life I invested in that relationship I am deeply, deeply in debt. It was my choice. I didn't fight for anything. I let him take whatever he asked for. I offered him more. I didn't call in a forensic accountant like my lawyer said I could. It was worth it just to keep my peace.
I've only been able to buy a car and keep the house because of the unwavering generosity of my parents. God, where would I be without those two? Living in a cardboard box at Guildford Train Station most likely. But yesterday I got a mortgage all on my own. It feels... invigorating. My home is now MY. HOME. Not his. Not ours. MINE.
So here's to the loving memory of smashed avo on toast. Now that I have crippling debt, like a real adult, I'll never be able to afford you again! 🥑🥑🥑 #cantina663 #mtlawley #smashedavo #breakfastofchampions #cripplingdebt #parentsarethebest
