I have had a new, positive outlook these past few weeks and just wanted to share...I finally sat down a looked at my life and realized all he took was him...I lost NOTHING!...I have my girls, my health, my family and friends, my home, my sanity ;), my self respect and dignity....all I "lost" was a man who obviously didn't love me, respect me or appreciate me...so - I've stopped obsessing over what I could have done differently ~ I was so focused on them...on her on their happiness until now....if in this instant I could trade my place in this world for hers I would not even consider it for a second!!!!! so, why would I dwell on what they have when it doesn't even compare to what I have....life is too short... and acceptance and happiness feel way better too! Thank you all for your amazing insights and support...couldn't have gotten here without you all!!! (((hugs)))
