Hey SI, long time no see!

Things have been going great, considering our journey till this point.

We got a puppy on our anniversary and I got my first tattoo about a week ago on one of the difficult dates in order to take that day back. Needless to say, it worked! The tattoo says, "I forgive" in a language from a novel that only I can read. I got it on my thigh so I can see it every morning and reaffirm that I do, in fact, forgive her.

She is still going strong on being a polar opposite to what she was before DDay 1.

I do still get darkness but I'm working on that. Will probably be working on it for many years. At this point it's my issue, not our issue.

I hope this update is helpful for whoever needs it.

If it’s your issue then it’s hers too. That’s what being married is all about.

And if she doesn’t remind you of that when you discuss it, then I am disappointed in her.

fBBF. Just before proposing, broke it off after her 2nd confirmed PA in 2 yrs. 9 mo later I met the wonderful woman I have spent the next 30 years with.

She has said many times that my problems are her problems, but I personally have finally come to understand that she's doing everything that she's required to do and then some. The issues I refer to are those that can only be fixed by me and me alone. The journey I'm taking for healing requires me to be in the driver's seat of a single-seater to make progress before settling in an RV with the family for the night. You know what I mean?
