The day I came to realize this was my second epiphany. The first one was that the A was not my fault, that I did not cause it, could not control it, that it really had absolutely nothing to do with me.

Great post...!

I've read this before but it always makes me feel better.

I often fall into the trap of feeling less than and giving way too much power to the MOW serial cheater loser.

My husband did drop her the minute I discovered the affair, all of her former married co-worker affair partners did the same thing-dropped her and never looked back, her husband finally divorced, why do I allow myself to continue to feel bad about myself? The MOW is the one that should be feeling bad...

What you have written is the absolute truth.

I found this site five days ago. Wish I'd found it two months ago because this would have been as uplifting then as it is now.

Been having a very bad day and this has helped. :)

Hey, yeah, just in case somebody wants to see this, my WW was also an OW (says she didn't know until his wife called me) and she's really pretty, but at the time she was a drug addict with about half a normal brain who (according to her) lost consciousness during sex. So DBB has a fine point, based on my anecdotal evidence.

thanks for this post!

XWH's own mother put it best, she told me once that he left because he can't stand a woman as good as me, I magnify his flaws.

Bumping this for newbies.

Is there any way this can make it into the Healing Library?

Maybe a long walk in the Hindu Kush would do it?

Bump, bump - love this post!

It is so true. When I get really down about WH A I have to keep telling myself that I am a wonderful woman - educated, loving, strong, and a wonderful mommy - and that she is nothing that can't keep her hands of of other women's spouses and is spending the next 2 1/2 years in the "big house" - the one with bars where they have to wear those lovely orange jumpsuits - because she has no self control
