As Amy Poehler puts it: "Getting a divorce really sucks."
The comedienne is opening up for the first time about her 2012 split from husband Will Arnett, which she calls "too sad" and "too personal" to describe in detail.
"Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air," the 43-year-old writes in an excerpt from her new memoir, "Yes Please," obtained by Hello! magazine.
"The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands," she continues.
The pair, married in 2003, are the parents to sons Abel, 6, and Archie, 5, who she emphasizes are her number one priority.
"I am proud of how my ex-husband Will and I have been taking care of our children," the SNL alum shares. "I am beyond grateful he is their father, and I don't think a 10-year marriage constitutes failure."

But the separation was anything but easy. "When you are a person going through a divorce you feel incredibly alone, yet you are constantly reminded by society of how frequently divorce happens and how common it has become," the "Parks and Recreation" star explains.
"You aren't allowed to feel special, but no one knows the specific ways you are in pain."
Surprisingly, it was fellow Emmy nominee, Louis C.K., who helped put things into perspective for her. "'Divorce is always good news because no good marriage has ever ended in divorce,'" she quotes him as saying.
Despite a rough couple of years, Amy has found love again with actor Nick Kroll, whom she began dating in May 2013.
"I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me. He puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring stories," she writes.
"On one of our first nights together, I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out two earplugs he had worn to bed so he could hear what I was saying," Amy shares. "It was one of the most romantic gestures I have ever seen."
