ahhhhhh....thank you Hearts! I have been under the radar screen for awhile. Still NC and basically still working on understanding the reason behind my decision to start the A in the first place. kwim?

Reasons I participated in the A:

1. Lonely
2. Bored
3. Craved excitement
4. Revenge for the "hurts" my H caused me *
5. Revenge for the "hurts" my in-laws caused me *
6. Xap was so incredibly handsome, powerful and rich
7. Xap chose me! (yup...classic low self esteem) (also warped thinking since he was married!)
8. Incredibly sexy and EXCELLENT in "bed" and everywhere else ;-)
9. Living out a fantasy
10.I felt empowered
11.We lived a "life" when we were together as a Real Couple.
12.We loved each other.

* These two issues were the true driving force for me to enter the A and justify it. Anger and resentment is what I am still working on.

It has been a winding road of turns and curves....crashes and bumps and one roll-over to reach this point of acceptance of letting go of the fantasy and addictive behavior I participated in while in the A and ending it.

The main thing I have learnt from the A was that it was just an illusion that I orchestrated within my mind. My skewed feelings and emotions replaced the sections of the string, brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments. I conducted the musical piece: The A; with such precision and intensity. Living and believing every 'note' that I wrote in order to enjoy..... the "symphony".....the performance literally took my breath away. The romantic influence was strong....

The performance has ended and the curtain has dropped.....the final note a distant memory

The affair is over and there is a quite hush in the concert hall.

I never thought I would ever be able to "move-on" emotionally for my xap....but I have. is true...the Mind is very powerful and we can and do chose what thoughts we think and act upon.



P.S. glad to see your name in Purple :-)

Until I barge in and break the silence with APPLAUSE!!!!!!!!!!

Take a bow. 

Those ones in *....ah yes revenge...that never works out in our favor, eh?  Well, you took the bumps and crashes, but you came out looking good because you always picked yourself up, dusted yourself off and got busy again.

You rock big time, my friend.  Welcome to Supertweenerville.

Love you to pieces,

A great big congratulations! I wonder if this is what it feels like to win a gold medal. I feel like we'll win the race so long as we keep doing what we're doing.
