I wax and wane. Sometimes I find comfort fron venting here. Sometimes there is great advice. Othertimes I battle with my inner cowardice and find the "action banishes fear" philosophy challenging. After years here I know what to do abd how to do it. But doing it is beyond me and I feel a semi detached member

Just want to say I really appreciate the forum and am a frequent visitor just now. The range of shared experiences has had a profound impact on my "is it just me" thinking after 10 years of being refused. At present I'm working my way through Byron Katie's insightful book "Loving what is" - anyone else read it?

I continue to be happy in my now 10-years long post SM relationship. I stay here to remind myself of how miserable my life was before I decided to divorce. Being here reminds me to be grateful for the life I have now. We're now 71, 72. My love has almost died twice since we've been together so every day is precious to me because I do know that all relationships end in death or divorce so I should treasure the life I have now. Not one time have I regretted ending my 34-year marriage.
Curious who all is still here and how everyone is going?
Hi, JMX ... I'm still here, although under a new name. I left for awhile but decided to come back after about a month. I'm still staying in this SM but have gotten to a dulled existence with my roommate. I don't feel anything about it anymore. It is what it is and I'm stuck. I hope all of the members here are doing well.

So I read a post of Baza and he said he was divorced in 2009. I don't do time real well but I am pretty sure I crossed paths with him in EP before his divorce and if that's true then I have been in my situation (2023 minus 2008= 🤯 15 years)...
I have no idea how I feel about it. I often don't come to this forum when things are good or when I feel like there is nothing new to say. Such great wisdom here but I have been to afraid to change my life. So here I am. Still.
