It hit me so hard but is so true!

“If one makes a mistake, then an apology is usually sufficient to get things back on an even keel. However-and this is a big ‘however’- most people do not ever know why their apology did not seem to have any effect. It is simply that they did not make a mistake; they made a choice…and never understood the difference between the two.”

That is really good! I can't tell you how many times my wife has referred to her affair as a mistake (ONS at work conference, followed by six weeks of talk and texting).

She's tired of me correcting her -- It was NOT a mistake! This really makes sense in light of the tone of her apologies. She expects apology/acceptance/move-on. It's not that easy.

If I want recovery, then I must allow for it to actually happen.
Is it possible that I actually do have all the truth now?
