I just don't care any more

While I was shopping, someone who is a relative of a relative saw me, gave me a big hug and said she heard how well I am doing now and how glad she is to hear it. Asked about a couple of specifics that told me she knows more.

She is a very nice person that I like and who is no-nonsense about infidelity and who she supports in it. So I made small talk asking her about her family and all. Then she asked more specific things. I figured wtf? I answered her, telling her more right there in the store than I have told other than close friends, my IC and here on SI. It felt good.

I really don't care any more. It is what it is and I didn't say anything that isn't the truth. There are people I know as well, unlike her, who would only ask so they could gossip, immediately spreading it, that I will avoid saying things to, but I just don't care any more in general. If those things eventually get around, that's ok too. Because it's the truth.

Not being ashamed of the truth is a big step in the healing IMO.

I am sorry about what you are going through. Like MOO said, you are healing.

I found a bit of honesty when appropriate felt freeing. It's a process. My next milestone was reaching the point that I no longer felt the need to share it because gradually what he did is no longer the center of my life. That's a gradual thing but I'm there more and more.

How freeing!

It does feel freeing doesn't it?

You have nothing to be ashamed of and should be able to get support wherever you can
