And while I am venting....

While I am venting and probably feeling sorry for myself. Let me add this quote:

Cheating
One can cheat the other but never himself/herself, the conscience never sleeps. You can try and silence the voice but it will find a vent somewhere or the other and manifest itself into ugly features. If you have cheated, face the truth, confess and more importantly, forgive yourself. If you are cheating, stop it right away and do the same. If you go on without making terms with your conscience it will haunt you. You can go on to cheat the whole world but not the law of nature. Karma will always find its way back to you. The mirrors that reflect your actions will record that moment and when the time comes, ask you to pay back! One lie leads to another; one mistake forces you to commit more. But take the decision to be true to the ones you love and those that trust and love you. Moreover be true to yourself!

Our WS have not faced themselves.

Love this quote! Where did you find it?

The reason why most of us are here in D/S is because the WS have not faced themselves. If know if mine had, I would be in the R forum.

Lovely quote.
But, I guess for people who have killed their conscience, it doesn't mean much.
E.g. My exW will always think me and a bad M pushed her to A and her fantasy is what a perfect M should be like. I'll always be the bad guy for bursting her bubble and spoiling her perfect world. Alas, some people just don't understand and will take their explanations to their graves.

I stumbled upon it. I am less than a week from getting my final D papers in the mail. Figured I needed a good quote for my FB page when I changed my status...

My STBXH is incapable of remorse. He chooses to live in denial and is too cowardly to face reality.

And while I am quoting. Let me add the lyrics to my current favorite song by Red - "Perfect Life". I can relate to every word in this song - perfectly (sorry couldn't help myself)...

You pretend to what you say you feel
You pretend that you're something special
All your lies that you hide behind
I see right through you
See right through you

Paint it on, cover every inch
Any flaw will expose your weakness
I'm immune to your fantasy
I won't become you
Won't become you

You want a perfect, perfect life
Nothing wrong, nothing real inside
All I see is a perfect lie
I don't want your perfect life
I don't want your perfect life

So keep your dream with no consequence
You damage me just to feed your senses
All your fake for reality
I see right through you
See right through you

Take your pride, take your vanity
Can't you see that your ego's empty
I will turn, I will walk away
I won't become you
Won't become you

You want a perfect, perfect life
Nothing wrong, nothing real inside
All I see is a perfect lie
I don't want your perfect life
I don't want your perfect life

My eyes are wide open
I see the enemy, the hypocrisy
Your cover is fading
Secrets pouring out, castles falling down
Nothing to hide behind
I know who I am inside
I'm perfectly broken

You want a perfect, perfect life
Nothing wrong, nothing real inside
All I see is a empty lie
I don't want your perfect life
I don't want your perfect life

I don't want your perfect life
I don't want your perfect life
The perfect life

I'd say someone in that band is a BS!

Good song.

I like both the quote and the song. Unfortunately, I think my POS is a souless bastard with no conscience or we would have R also. He thinks that chalking it up to "bad decisions" and he is "only human with human failings" justifies his every action... I keep telling him he needs to do a little more research on what the church says about true contrition (its a Catholic thing). I also keep telling him denial is a river in Egypt...
