So now all three of us know all of the things again! And we're much happier for it. Honestly you guys, I feel 100 pounds lighter. I even feel better about the overall cheating scars. Like, I feel closer to healing, just having looped K in. Her response was so reassuring for me (and I think G too) to show us that even though this one part of our polyship failed, the other part is still growing in positive ways. And I think it was good for G to see that being honest with a partner doesn't automatically incur a breakup/emotional disaster.
Obviously, there is a lot of work left to do. But I feel good about it.
Yay! Moving it forward! Vulnerable Shared, conflict faced. Polyship dealing with it, learning new things.
Much cleaner/lighter all around.
Even if the outcome was not as promising, knowing you did the ethical thing would have been balm to the soul.
Good for you!
