Another 2011-er chiming in with a HELL NO. Couldn't pay me enough to do it for a minute. Nope. No way.
Were you 2011's at hell no right away, or did it take some time to get there?I was at "hell no" on dday, before I even confronted wasband. I never wavered from it, in part due to his amazing ability to be a horse's ass on the regular.

I'm not much of a masochist. Once I got to the point where I couldn't see the back of my teeth anymore, I moved straight into the "oh hell no!" category.

I am a late 2011. Unfortunately I still think about what it would be like he if got his head out of his a**. Highly unlikely. And every day I do get more clarity about why he is not a good spouse for me.
I don't want these feelings. But as my therapist's says, its ok to have these feelings.

I'm a HELL NO person now, but it took me a long time to get there - 3 1/2 years or so.
I think part of my feelings come from the fact that I didn't have a even a chance at R, he was already gone before I even knew what was happening.
^^This was a big part of why it took me so long. I think the abandonment on top of the infidelity (and just after empty nest) completely flattened me. It was a lot to cope with and it took a long time to crawl out of that mess. This crap ain't for sissies, that's for sure.

NEVER! Not in a million years, even if he came up my street on his knees. Not if I was offered a world of riches.
And I've been HELL NO from DDay. He disgusts me.

I sometimes do, but I recently had what felt like an epiphany. For the first time, I felt I could handle checking out the "Just Found Out" forum. I came to this site much later and have not strayed much from NB. As I read all of the wisdom and advice in JFO, it came to me, for the first time, that MY ex had done all of those things to me (gaslighting, et al) and I just didn't recognize it in him - I thought...I can't even explain what I thought. And also for the first time, I have kept my boundaries very strict and now he won't speak to me in the very few times we have crossed paths. And I find that it doesn't bother me in the least. For him not to speak to me, he must be upset about something. Compartmentalize that, asshole.
