Hurting,

Many of these posts have been around for a while, and people have tried to keep them bumped to the front pages. But with our membership growing so quickly and posting so much they can get to the back before you know it! Once it gets to the end of page 25 a post is gone.

Luckily I saved a bunch and as I said they will be added to the Healing Library when our lovely leaders can.

I hope they helped!

Thank you so much for putting these all together! I will copy and past and use for the future.

I don't know much about SerJ. Was she able to repair her marriage? Is she a psychologist? Whatever she is, I'm very impressed!

SerJR is one of our male members. He did divorce, but I understand he is currently engaged to a wonderful woman and is very happy.

So many of our members who have been here a while and are further along in thier healing stay to help out others. SerJr, just seems to focus a lot of his wisdom on helping those in JFO.

Thanks for collecting this Thrive - you rock!!

AwareNow,

Yes, I did divorce as my exwife continued to date other men after d-day and I told her I would rather make the marriage work - I wasn't going to accept that behaviour continuing. I am engaged to a wonderful woman and we are planning to marry in September.

Unfortunately, things have been rather busy with a career change and I haven't been able to post as much the past few months, but I still do pop in from time to time.

The one thing I can tell you though, is that no matter what - if you can stay true to your principles and keep faith in yourself that you will be okay

Me: BH - Happily remarried.
Hope is never lost. It exists within you - it is real. It is not a force in and of itself - it is something that you create with every thought, action, and choice you make. It is a gift that you create for yourself.

Thank you for replying SerJR! I am honored.

It really seems that you have healed and moved on. Your journey in healing is an inspiration to us all. Thank you for all your hard work in writing your posts and giving hope to others. I'm new here, but I can see how grateful to you everyone here is.

And congratulations on the upcoming wedding!

I recently found out that Holly-Isis is the author of the wonderful "BS Bill of Rights" post.

Thank you so much Holly for taking the time to put together such a powerful tool! It's so helpful not only to the newbies, but to those a little farther out that need to be reminded of there rights.

A few of these weren't written by SerJr. If you wrote them or know who did please send me a PM so I can give credit to the author!
