I agree, this is very brave and very valuable because I certainly can say I've made my mistakes too. It would be easier to say I've been a poly goddess and never made a mistake in my life but I simply haven't. I've made stupid mistakes as well, and they have been hurtful for all involved, even myself.
I won't say much more here, but I decided to post more to my own personal thread because that seemed more appropriate.
(If anyone can show me how to link that'd be great, lol, and I'll do so...).
Thank you for your honesty and sharing. It sounds like you've done the right thing to begin a more healthy pattern for everyone involved.
