Welcome! I hope you get as much out of being here as I have! The good thing about Poly is that there is no "right" way! The lifestyle is so open an since it can bring multiple people together it requires being flexible and open to understanding the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, intentions, values etc. of each person involved. Communicating, compromising,'s all a part of it. Being authentic and honest is the best way to create a firm foundation.

During times of difficult emotions, I find that focusing on self care is the best medicine!! I get back to basics. Eat healthy, daily exercise, get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, and then do the things that bring you pleasure!
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
