This forum saved my sanity and sometimes I think, saved my life.
The information I received here while separated and divorcing served me well time and time again. The thoughtful and loving comments and posts got me through the darkest hours.
I am grateful. But there was an added treasure I received from the S/D forum. I formed incredible friendships – friendships that still bolster me and bring me joy.
So quickly, I want to share what is going on with my dearest SI friends two years out. One friend is working her dream job and just purchased a beautiful home all on her own. Another friend just was awarded a very equitable divorce settlement and finally has some well deserved peace of mind. This weekend I learned that one friend met the man of her dreams and is getting married next month. My closest SI friend, one who shares my discovery date, is in a healthy and happy relationship with a career that is going gangbusters. Even I have met a terrific guy who makes me laugh and treats me splendidly. Perhaps the best news of all is that ALL of our kids are doing well – still adjusting – but making great progress every day. These friends are all ages, both genders and are literally all over the world.
Hopefully this will remind people that there honestly is life after infidelity hell. We can grow and evolve and build better lives! So reach out to your SI family. They will become the family you choose and the family that TRULY understands.
