My Story Brigher than the fire around me
#10: November 24, 2021, 06:01:37 PM
I knew it would be unhealthy for me and for our daughter to stay attached to him so I was never tempted to check in on him or the OW via mutual acquaintances or social media. I have my pride and my sense of self and I won't compromise either one for him. I love the quotes: "Let go or be dragged. " and "Never make someone else a priority, who makes you an option."

Thank you Phoenix for your message and strength giving myself and others on this forum hope as we work to rebuild our lives.  I just blocked my W on social media and am working to detach as our divorce reaches its final stages.  I like the quotes "Let go or be dragged".   I am definitely letting go and looking forward to the future in my life.
