I feel very differently when infidelity hits the news now versus how I viewed it pre-A. It might be decorated Generals, politicians, celebrities, or movie stars....but the overwhelming feeling of sadness comes over me. The fact that they have attained higher status or more money then I doesn't matter. We have the same worth and have the same struggles.
I feel sad for all involved...having seen the pain adultery causes. It is also disturbing how frequently it is reported and how prevalent it is in American society today.
I no longer judge the strength of a BS...matters not to me if they stay or leave the WS....I see both decisions in equal light. I see both as difficult roads.
I do have anger towards the WS, but within that anger is some sympathy. I have witnessed first hand how controlling the emotions of being in an affair are. My wife was like she never had been before...I didn't recognize her, nor did her friends or family.
A famous golfer replied to reporters like this....
Reporter...How could you lie to us for a year about your infidelity?
Famous golfer...Honestly, I was lying to myself at that time so I didn't think I was lying to you.
I can NOW see the truth, as crazy as it is, behind his statement.
God be with us all.
