It took a long time, but THIS time I really think about what could happen if I break no contact again. This quote says it well:

The pain and price of discipline is less than the pain and price of regret. ... think about it.

I put several other quotes in the healing library, there were several that really speak to me these days. Hope they help someone else as well.

Have a great weekend, I'm packing to travel across the world this week!! :smileyhappy:

That's a great quote, K...thank you for sharing it...and sharing others in the Healing Library.

You are going to have a great vacation!  You stuck to NC, so you can travel proud  and strong.  You are working things out, and when we do that, we drop old baggage along the way.  And thank goodness for that...consider the charge for baggage on the flights these days :smileyhappy:

Traveling across the world!  I'm so excited for you!

Have a safe flight.  And post in when you get home and settled to tell us all about it.

Send a postcard.

((hugs))

Clarity

Thanks Clarity. I don't leave til Thursday, so I will be around. That addiction voice in my head wants to let xap know I'm leaving,  so I need to be here everyday so that doesn't happen. I'm going to be so relieved once I'm gone and have no way to contact for 2 weeks! :smileyhappy:

Thanks Hurts and Soglad,

I really liked that quote too,, dieing a little inside to be reborn, stronger and wiser. I remember the first time I read it the tears rolled... I continue to work on stronger and wiser too.
