One of the things in my nb is that I do random nice things for myself. Today, I went for a massage at a new place.

5 minutes in, she reveals that she recently got divorced and is having a hard time. So, I spent 55 minutes counseling the BW.

I felt so bad for her. I hope I helped her. I hope that I was never that crushed by jagoff wxh's departure from my life.

The massage was excellent.

I'm guilty of that, multiple times, but I didn't get a massage!

Really great of you though wm - so many people pass on those opportunities. Nice job.

That was so nice of you to be there for her and give her support. I'm sure your help touched her heart.

I'm glad you had a great massage.

Raising hand. I've done it a few times with perfect strangers and gave them the SI website. Don't know if they are here, though.
I figure, if I can help even one person get through with my encouragement, then something goo can come from the shit he put me through.
Not many strangers IRL helped me along the way until I found SI. Luckily, I have good friends though with this experience way behind them!


I don't need further confirmation of what a fuckwit he is. I already have plenty, thanks very much. -SBB

As a professional Bodyworker I'm cringing that her boundaries were so poor that you were taking care of her in your session!


BS, age 53, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years and 20 together. Now I am living alone in the beautiful rural property that was once the dream retreat with X. It's taking a long time to create new dreams but despite some struggles I am mostly happy.

Yep. It wasn't the most relaxing environment for a massage. But I'll give her a pass because her pain was so palpable.

I didn't give her the SI information because she said a couple of times that she was totally computer illiterate.

I hope that I paid forward a little bit of what has been given to me in life.

Glad it was an excellent massage and that you helped this poor woman.


Sit. Feast on your life.
