So I am 7 months out now. WS moved out last week to a 3 month sublet. I thought we were fighting for our family but it turns out he was unable to cut her out of his life.
We have different ideas about why he left.
Him: You kicked me out of my house. We needed a break from tearing each other apart. (fights. mean ones)
Me: You left because keeping OW in his life was more important than rebuilding trust.
I thought we were in R for quite a while. He was rug sweeping and I was just happy he was tidying up. Then I found this site. WS could teach a course on rug sweeping.
I am trying desperately to do the 180. I might have to go and review.
My problem is I still obsessively creep her on twitter. And monitor when they chat (I can tell when they are online together)
I get it. He’s gone. We are separated. He can do what he wants. I can do what I want.
But I’ve kept a door open for him and a space for him. He can come back under my terms. In the end I do not think he will. Or if he does, it will be to late. Am I just looking for one final thing, or one final betrayal that will help me close the door?
Some days it’s just so damn sad. He blew up his life and DD and I are the collateral damage.
I need help with the concept “you have to be willing to lose the relationship, to save the relationship” I can’t recall the exact words. But the concept stuck with me. It’s where I am today.
I have to let go. Stop the creeping and obsessiveness. Not allow them space in my head. But how?
