I was realizing this morning what "safe haven" SI is for me, and want to make my gratitude public. So Deeply Scared, Meta, MangledHeart, authenticnow, jo2love, wifehad5, Jrazz, LosferWords, Moo and nowiknow23, thanks for being our SI angels.
Thank you krsplat and deena
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
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
I am grateful for it every day.
"Look, as sentient meat, however illusory our identities are, we craft those identities by making value judgments. Everybody judges, all the time. Now, you got a problem with that, you’re living wrong."
My tolerance for stupid shit is getting less and less.
I know we all feel lucky to be here and be able to help in this capacity.
I've seen some other infidelity recovery sites, and the quality of the forums doesn't come close to SI. I can't believe their members are any better or worse than SI members are. The big difference between SI and the other sites, IMO, is the moderation and guidance.
DS and MH set SI up based on loving values and guidelines, and 'the staff' uses them to bring out the best in almost all of us.
