I wasn't married, and didn't have nearly the years in that you did; but this is exactly how I felt. Exactly.
>blush< Thank you, NR, I'm glad that what I wrote captured that feeling well enough that you recognized it as your own.

...So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
JaneQ, are you a counselor? If not, you should be...
No, I am not (officially) a counselor but ... looking at these feelings, and where they come from, comes into play on a daily basis at my job (and, I think, helps me do it better - actually, reading on these forums has accelerated my understanding of my clients lives/feelings - in ways that has nothing to do with poly).
I'm glad that what I had to say was helpful. I was a little afraid that I was a bit too... impassioned
? but these are deep and powerful emotions that we are dealing with here. Potentially life-changing.
Reading on these forums, all of these situations, all of these reactions - has really helped me in terms of my own perspectives, and all of the OTHER perspectives out there. I'm glad I could reflect some of this back to you. Your reply to my post really touched me (in so many ways); THIS is what we are here for - to share our experiences and support each other, help make the road a little smoother.
May your journey be enlightening...wherever the roads may lead ("construction zones" and all
