I feel like the word.

After Dday I have drowned myself in reading literature. It helps that this is a significant part of my profession.

An Atwood Quotes hit me really hard today. 8 months after Dday and it still feels like I just found out.

“You can wet the rim of a glass and run your finger around the rim and it will make a sound. This is what I feel like: this sound of glass. I feel like the word shatter. I want to be with someone.”

That was perhaps one of the most moving and poignant things I've ever read.

I am sorry for your suffering. Coping with the hellish swirl of emotions and the physical manifestations of this grief might be the greatest challenge we will ever face.

Keep reminding yourself that there is a good and peaceful life on the other side of infidelity. And remember that you are among friends here.

Hmmmm, the sound of the glass rim and the sound of breaking glass, so different.

I work with stained glass and the sound of stress for me is like a break in a large piece of glass. You begin at one end and as the glass tears/ breaks along the score line there is a sound until it finally snaps in two pieces. If the glass is thin, it snaps all at once. Shattering glass sounds very different, less suspense, more alarming as something hits the floor and breaks or is smashed by an object.

Yes shattered people seek comfort. They may withdraw or seek others.
