User Topic: My BS didn't deserve the disrespect

Yesterday, one of my family members/friends (close enough friends that we consider them family) was over for Easter. He recently was on a long business trip away from home. During the trip, he took a picture with some younger attractive women. He was going through pictures of his trip and showed this one to both my wife and I and even commented on how "hot" the women were... all this with his wife sitting next to him.

I immediately felt offended by this. I could see the pain in her face. I never had the ability to see this before.

Last night I then started thinking back over the years how I have both condoned actions like this from my guy friends and even done this exact thing myself. I realized how fucking disrespectful this was to my BS. It's just so damn sad that I needed the smack in the face that losing everything I really love brings to you to realize this. What a horrible price to pay.

I pray that other WSs realize our BSs didn't deserve the disrespect we have gave them. They deserve to be honored and respected at all times. Let's show them that.

oh gosh so so true! I think of all the little details and lies and manipulations I justified but it all comes down to such blatant disrespect of my spouse, and of myself.
He did nothing to deserve this.....

Even if "they" did, "you" didn't. You can't build solid structures on a rotted foundation. Enabling disrespect toward another is eroding your very core.

In either of those scenarios the recipient and their behavior or actions towards us is irrelevant.

BS here:

Thanks for your post! I used to have this exact conversation with my husband but he didn't see it either. He was constantly making inappropriate comments to his friends related to size of women's breasts, sex in general, etc. "It's just a joke on Twitter/FB/whatever." "I'm not serious and they know it."

Now, he understands how hurtful those comments are and how they can be misleading - for all parties - even if they weren't meant to be serious come-ons.

Good point. I think of all the times I jokingly threw her under the proverbial bus about something, or even joked about "doing things with my girlfriend."

I feel so stupid for all of those things she never deserved, but I realize now that it was because I thought I was bulletproof and everything in my life would just work itself out without any effort on my behalf.

I agree. The disrespect I showed towards my BH during my As was the worst kind.

He didn't deserve it, that's for sure.
