Amazing. I felt similar when I finally accepted myself as bisexual and as having been head over heels for one of our dearest friends and finally told my husband-who already knew and was just waiting for me to catch up. Even now, after my relationship with her has ended, we are freer, closer, and happier than we ever were. We have more friends in common and are more approachable.
It's amazing the power that truth and love hold and how much of a difference in every aspect of life it makes to freely express those things. I'm so happy for you. And it seems you have come so far in such a short time. Your relationship and your story is inspirational.
