Because I'm only sorry about the actual divorce part. I don't regret the rest of it. I don't regret meeting the Ex, or marrying him. I'm a better person today for knowing him. I learned a lot about myself and who I want to be. And we still keep in touch.
I am happier than I've ever been. If you must pity me, which I would detest, do so only when I am unhappy. And right now, the only unhappiness in my world is the long-term separation from the one I love best in the world. But we're in this together, and that makes me happy.
So please. Stop telling me you're sorry when I inform you that I have gone from Mrs to Ms. I like being a Ms...for now.
