Hi "Free" and what a beautiful nickname you chose.
Your feelings are absolutely normal. Divorce bears many labels; societal, religious, parental... Your feelings are being fueled by such labels.
Deep down you know that your choice was the right thing, but on a "public" level you are being held hostage to what people may think. Try and recognise who or what in your life may have influenced you to even stay this long in this dysfunctional marriage and understand that this judgment is born out of people's insecurities.
Your divorce is not a breakup point in your life but a change of direction. Yes, do mourn your loss and recognise your hurt and then embrace the opportunities that are awaiting you.
Your subject is "guilt" and your nickname is "Free". Trust your intuition and be free of your guilt.
