    Even though I know he wasn't good

    for me. It hurts to find out he moved on so fast. He still tries to leave VM at my office and all this time he has been dating a person he works with. Wow. True narcissist. It still stings a bit. But I'm better off. Just a sad day today. I hate that. Ugh. How I found...

    It's been over for a year.

    The toughest year in my adult life. I believe like everyone, I have an innate emotional intelligence that will direct me to my personal bliss. The affair woke me up to passion, like nothing else has ever done before. I'm more empathic, less judgmental & more open minded than...

    So, I guess I've been pretty ashamed about

    contacting my AP. It had been three weeks, and the longest we've ever gone without any contact, and I caved. I unblocked him and then a couple of days later sent a message. Last we spoke, he had lost his job and wasn't sure if he'd make rent. Still half heartedly in his...

    after my affair. As I look back I can finally see why I put her above everyone else. It's because what we had was not real. I justified that I was in love with her and that she was perfect to make me feel better about what I was doing. For the most part my relationship with my...
