I just wanted to share so good news since we often focus on the negative. I'm 18 mo out, and my FWH is trying so hard to be the h I deserve. The past 18 mo have been torture! I've been depressed and just getting by and riding that awful rollercoaster we are all on. Well, I finally decided I was going to take care of myself and get into ic. At first I thought she was a bit strange, and aways felt worse after my sessions. I have gone 4 times and the last two I have left feeling really good. She has given me ways to deal with my triggers, and recommended a book by jack kornfield. I looked him up and have started looking into forgiveness meditation, and for the first time in 18 mo I feel normal. I'm happy, enjoying my kids, my h, and even my friends. One thing I've really taken from my new perspective is that they took a lot from me but they do not have the right to take away my joy. I have made the decision to acknowledge my feelings but to not dwell. I've wasted so much headspace on thoughts that do not matter. I can't change the past. So, although I don't feel completetly committed to my marriage I'm going to take it one day at a time and enjoy each day. I deserve it! Sorry for the rambling, I just thought I'd share:)
