I think these explain where I am today.

"livid, adj.

Fuck You for cheating on me. Fuck you for reducing it to the word cheating. As if this were a card game, and you sneaked a look at my hand. Who came up with the term cheating, anyway? A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thought liar was too harsh. Someone who thought devastator was too emotional. The same person who thought, oops, he’d gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Fuck you. This isn't about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars of Monopoly money. These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned."
- David Levithan

"Bushwhacked, I examine my hands. Same hands. Rings still there but no longer valid."
- Suzanne Finnamore

"I love you as the mother of my child": the kiss of death.
Mother of His Child: demotion. I am beginning to see this truism: Mothers are not always wives. I have been stripped of a piece of self."
- Suzanne Finnamore

"I travel back in time, falling back into what I know for certain, the historical data I cling to in order to not go mad, not assume I made a suicidal and well-informed error in marrying this man."
- Suzanne Finnamore

"Yes. THANK YOU. And say hello to Judas Iscariot."
- Suzanne Finnamore

"I review what I know once again, confronting the monolith now alien and almost unconnected to me: my marriage."
- Suzanne Finnamore

I'm not sure I know which way is up.

My favorites are: “Those who are faithless know the pleasures of love; it is the faithful who know love’s tragedies" – Oscar Wilde &
“I think in the end, you would have stayed with me, out of obligation...or maybe comfort. Maybe I was safe to you, and you needed to feel that. I know how scared you get of the unknown. To you...I must be kind of a security blanket. Do you see now, how that doesn't work for me? I don't want to be there, simply because the idea of me being gone is too...scary. I want to be someone's everything. I want fire and passion, and love that's returned, equally. I want to be someone's heart... Even if it means breaking my own.” ― S.C. Stephens

this puts into words exactly what I'm feeling.

"Infidelity is a deal breaker for me. I've broken up with people over it. You can't do monogamy 90 percent of the time."
Alanis Morissette

"I find infidelity interesting because it's so revelatory about people. It's this really silent thing. Everyone acknowledges it as a general practice, but nobody likes to go beyond that, to get down to the nitty-gritty."
