I am so sorry that we are all in this boat but I am so glad to have the support here. I was really down yesterday evening after putting together great holiday for kids. As I was bawling my eyes out I came here and saw that this is such a hard time of year for so many of us. I hate that we are all here but feel so lucky to have a community that "gets it". I hope that we soldier on to a better year...

Same here. I have gotten incredible advise from wonderful people, from this, the "best club I never wanted to be a part of".
All of you at SI make it bearable. Better support than family even, truly. Nothing like having the thoughts of hundreds of people who've been through it.
My 2014 is going to be much better than 2013..

Just an echo for what everyone else is saying. Reading and posting here has kept me from bad decisions I would have made to talk to STBXH. We have to stay strong together, even in our weakness.

^^^what NG said
plus: I would never have realised that all the other 'nothings' were infidelity. I just knew how they made me feel and then we both gaslit the fuck out of me .
16 years later, now that I know better I can do better moving forward. Thanks SI and all the wise (unfortunate to be here) peeps .

Hopping on this bandwagon! I spent the greater part of Christmas Eve and Christmas night reading through the threads .. and commenting on some, and just realizing that this really is a great community. Poor unfortunate souls .. (Disney song running through my head) ... we will persevere, we will survive ... we trusted the untrustworthy, we loved the unworthy and now we need to trust and love ourselves.
2014 the year to rebuild and retrench ...

I just started posting recently but have been a member for a couple of years (wow -- that long????)
I know that I would be a total basket case if it weren't for this site. I have learned so much.
And like BAB61, I've been on a lot over the last couple of days.
Thank you SI peeps for the support and helping me keep my sanity.

I'm pretty sure I'd be spending life in prison with no chance of parole for murder if it weren't for SI.
I think...therefore, I'm single.
It is what it is.
