Two night ago, I had the opportunity to have a revenge affair with a gorgeous woman. Today I can look myself in the mirror and know that I did not stoop to that level---even though I was sooooo tempted.
Ah, the little successes!

Kudo's to you for making the right decision. It's nice to be able to look at yourself in a mirror and respect what you see, isn't it?

I have entertained that idea on many occasions and had the chance to do so. I'm glad I took the straight and narrow. Good for you for controlling yourself. It's a really hard thing to do considering our circumstances especially when your give a damn is busted.

And I'll bet it wasn't even a blip on your radar. Why? Because YOU are an honorable man who takes his vows seriously. (((hugs)))
Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.
