I don't see it as being resigned.
Yes, there was trust broken, but we've come a long way in 2 years.

No, I'm not always happy. It is not my goal to be always happy. The happy outweighs the unhappy more than enough. The unhappy is always a chance to learn more about myself, him, and our relationship.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, and I think my situation is very different from the OP. There are no absolute solutions here I think. But I do think that my point of view is one that is rarely heard on these boards, which is why I wanted to add my story - which is, in my opnion, not an unhappy one at all.
