10 years since I started lurking on here

Hi Pink Carnation! I remember you well. I'm coming up on my 10 year anniversary, too. I haven't been here in years. SO glad to run into an old friend in the first place I clicked.

I can honestly say that I'm doing good, most days. I still have more anger and less trust than I did before DDay. But, that's ok. I was probably a doormat before.

I'm glad this club (that I never would have volunteered to join) is still here, but I'm sorry that it needs to be.

For the newbies--there is life after Dday--good life, with happiness and sun. I promise. I admit that it is different. But different can be good too.

Good to see you Pink. Take care.

I remember you also. Sorry that you have those feelings that continue to surface and yet I think most of us do. Iím glad your new life is a happy one.

Pink I remember you and "glitterpig"
Glad you are feeling better.
Having to deal with XH on a regular basis never let's it fully fade away.

You however are living your best life.

Sid, I agree. I like WHO I am better now. I was a confused doormat before, too. That is a great point. I second your encouragement to newbies.

Deephurt, ya know how it is. Things come up, but this junk made us stronger.

Tushnurse, can I just say- I LOVE YOUR SCREEN NAME SOOOO MUCH!!!! I will say that Glitterpig was my favorite mistress of his. She was the only one that actually apologized and admitted I was right about him.

Life if funny, hilarious- really.

Hey Pink,

I remember you tooóweíre both class of 2011. I had my own GlitterPig, but fortunately, she was not in my vicinity.

I totally hear you about the ongoing sadness. Of course, my WH never got it one little bit and has steadfastly tried to wait it out in silence. . .for going on ten years.

Iíve moved on. Yes, Iím very, very strong, not that that was my ultimate goal. But Iím definitely sadder but wiser. I think i could have reached a more optimistic wisdom just fine without having to go through this.

Hang in there and come hang around once in awhile. Itís still a great place that always understands.

Peace and joy to you.

Nowhat, I am not sure if you realized your Music Man "sadder but wiser" reference- BUT I AM HERE FOR IT. I was just saying that to myself yesterday, when looking at two pictures of myself. One was before this mess and one now. Sadder but wiser.... but I like me.

Cheers and peace to you too!!!

Oh yes, totally a Music Man reference. Iím sure it both dates me and IDís me as coming from a particular type of familyóthe kind that watched musicals and sang four-part harmony on road trips.

And I ended up the sadder but wiser girl. But yeah, I like me too. I donít like what happened to my family, hate it in fact, but the company on these boards rocks. We are awesome survivors.
