Congratulations!!!! I know that you are in a continual struggle with your stbxww. Thank you for being able to reach out to so many others and help them out during all of this.
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

Wow! Thanks for alerting me that this was going on down here!
You people are incredible.
I had no idea that there were 1,000 posts. Frankly I'm a little embarrassed! I feel like I came in and took over the SI forums.
But you all flocked to my side and got me where I am today. I have said it before, but now is a good opportunity to say it again: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I honestly do not believe I would have been able to find my strength to file if it hadn't been for SI. I would still likely have been in limbo enduring agonizing emotional abuse.
I have supportive family, friends, and therapist IRL. They all urged me toward the path I am now on. But the truth is, like a bereavement or any support group, nobody understands the trauma of infidelity unless they have gone through it. Cliched, but true.
To think: faceless, pseudonymed people in cyberspace played a crucial role in facing and conquering the most devastating decision and trauma of my life. It amazes me.
And I resolve to always give back to the many people here. It's the least I can do.
Again, just thank you--thank you so much. You are the good ones in life.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

Woo Hoo! Abbondad!!! Glad you are in a better spot b/c of all your different support groups!
Reconciliation means that we both are authentic and vulnerable. I still have my H, and he's a better man than ever!

Don’t get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.
