I don't know if this has ever been a topic for discussion but I will introduce it anyway. I was thinking again (sometimes this ain't pretty, you might want to take a step back) and it occured to me that I feel stronger and better able to handle the things in my life that have been giving me problems. For instance, my relationship with my X. We don't fight, never have, or yell or say hurtful things; we're just not together. In this process of examing this I thought of how much more time I spend on this site. I like it here, it's my safe place. No one judges you, everyone is supportive and treats you like a friend. Well the thought occurred to me that DS was a crutch I was using to get through the day. Am I really getting stronger.Why would sharing war stories for a few days be more helpful then everything I've tried in the past couple of years? I am completely greatful for this site; I wish I would have found it when the hurting was new. I appreciate everyone here who has given me a word or extended a hand in friendship.
