I did all the hard work of liberating myself from the things that were fixable myself, and I'm proud of that. Only a small part of that has to do with polyamory.

I'm the odd one out yet again! LOL

I think I have conformed for too long, and while pulling my finger out of the dyke I got a flood when I expected a trickle. Coming to terms with being poly was a big step to my personal liberation ('big' maybe because it is my first serious attempt at casting off the yoke?).

But I think I understand what you both are saying - it's a process and this is just one step.
