When you can't sleep so you ride until you come across some bar somewhere that's still open and has loaded tots 👍🏻

Anyone have any questions for someone who actually currently works for a dealer? While my answers obviously may be a bit more geared towards how BMW does things, I'm sure I can lend some insight in to the behind the scenes a bit in general.

Well, I tried...

Throughout my marriage I truly believe I did everything I could to make Kayla happy. In the end, she came to me and told me she wanted to be with someone else (instagram screenshot). She'd met him months prior, as had I. She found him more attractive, to be "sweet and kind", and no longer wanted to be married to me. I spent hours that night trying to compromise and find a way to save my marriage. I offered to do anything. Marriage counseling. To go back to being friends and try and work on it slowly from there. Even when that didn't work out I offered her to still stay at the apartment we shared, that I'd sleep on the couch, and I'd help work on getting her setup some place else but that she didn't have to move right out like she intended. She declined all of it. Cold, heartless, not a tear in her eye over this. It was obviously something she had been planning, and a day at the track with her new boyfriend and his friend of them in her ear was enough to push her to do this. There was no saving it.

Once I realized it couldn't be saved, I still wanted her to be happy. Sure, I might not be who she wants to be with anymore, but I still love her and want her to be happy at all costs. She wanted the car. Done. She wanted the cat. Sure thing. Everything she asked for she got, with the exception of the Yamaha R3 motorcycle I have purchased for her. I asked if I could keep it, for the sole purpose of helping to pay for this divorce. Oh yeah, did I mention I was even paying for the settlement agreement, the filing fees, the entire divorce? That I was structuring the agreement in a way that she could legally date because she said she wanted to do that sooner than later? That this was a priority for her? I told her that with sticking me with the rent (which I initially wasn't going after her for), on top of legal costs, that this was going to seriously drain any and all money and I had and to make sure I didn't run completely out to the point I couldn't pay my bills I wanted the R3, the only asset we were going to argue over, just in case I had to sell it to keep afloat. She was getting everything for free, and the only thing I asked for was essentially an insurance policy that I wouldn't not be able to keep my lights on. I even mentioned that if everything went well and I didn't need it, we'd work it out so she got it.

So she took everything of hers from the apartment, including the cat, and even some of my things. She agreed to be civil about the divorce, as she initially had been saying some nasty things about me to other people in an effort to not admit that she was leaving me for this other guy. A lot of which were just flat out lies. Many people know how I treated her, and what I did for her, but she still went on to claim that I was some horrible awful person. Even though I was still the one giving her everything as I always had, even if that meant I was paying for her to be able to go date someone else and leave me behind abruptly.

Once she got the cat she immediately went out and started hanging out with every mutual friend we ever had. Even people she hadn't spoken to in years, as if they were suddenly best friends. She told most of them similar stories, but all in all it was my fault, or it certainly wasn't anything on her behalf.

EVEN THEN I still worked to figure out a way where she walked away happy, she had everything she wanted. I found a different lawyer who would charge me way less to draft the agreement and was working on negotiating with her a way for me to not need the R3 anymore, something she had agreed I could keep (verbally, but in front of other people). The moment I even hinted at the idea of her pitching in anything towards this divorce, or the bills she left me with, she lawyered up and came after my money. Claiming to the courts that I permanently destroyed her happiness. And that because I had done so much for her back when she made so little, that even though she now makes $55,000 a year (a far cry from back when she made $22,000) she still needs my money to survive.

I'm meeting with my lawyer again Monday to figure out where to go from here, as clearly giving her everything she wants isn't enough. Obviously things are about to change as far as the direction I was taking, but I really needed to clear the air. Tell my side of the story. If you knew me, at all, you saw time and time again what I did for that woman. She left me the day before she started a new job that I helped her get, that'd give her enough money for her to live on her own and go be with this other guy. And now she wants to ask a court to agree to have me give her money monthly for her to continue to be without me because I destroyed her happiness...

I've been an absolute wreck over this shit, trying to keep busy so I don't fall in to the hole of depression I was in the first two weeks.. I'm the one who has had their happiness destroyed. And yet I'm the one who has to continue to suffer. Meanwhile she's at the track, right now, with this guy, for the whole weekend. Having the time of her life.

First it was super hot, then it rained. Took the bike with a coworker today anyway, knowing the weather. Worth it.
