Tomorrow is 6 years since d-day. Every year I post some reflections on our R, our M, and the progress we've made.

I don't feel like I have a lot to say this year. Life feels normal, quiet, comfortable, happy and right. Nothing memorable to post....sounds good to me!

I asked LD the other day how he is feeling about the upcoming date, if he was triggery this month and he said it's been rough. We talked a little bit.

I've resigned myself to the fact that this will be a rough day for him, there's nothing I can do to make it go away. I'll acknowledge it, tell him I love him and hug him tighter than usual. I'll thank him for sticking with me and for loving me like he does. I'll reassure him that he is safe with me and always will be.

I am so grateful to be on this side of six years. The journey really sucked at the beginning! I'm grateful to be where I am, where we are in this marriage and in life.

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart DS and MH, for this place of support, and everyone who helped us and continues to help us along the way.

We're at six years, two months. I'm SO glad to be where we are today.

Congratulations on making it through the storm.

It is disheartening to read that after 6 years Dday remains a difficult day.

For me Dday year 1 was rough.
Dday year 2 was rough.
I fear that Dday year 3 will be rough.

I hate the idea that 10 years from now Dday will probably be rough. I wonder if this will ever change.

I guess it is indicative of how deeply traumatic infidelity is. The pain and sadness, however slight, is long lasting.

The two of you have worked really hard to get to where you are. You deserve all the normal happy and right feelings you have today and in the future.

"I'll reassure him that he is safe with me and always will be."
You give me hope that when my husband says this to me it is the truth.
Thank you and congratulations to you.
