Thanks for sharing warmways . Sarah Blondin, Insight Timer, and guided meditations were all the gateway drug for me to eventually walk away from my marriage. Some people know my story, but it took me years from finding this site to finally finding the courage and clarity to leave. We're now in the middle of it. The middle of a divorce is teh worst thing I have experienced, by a magnitude of 100 (no exaggeration). I am doing a ton of meditating lately. Thanks for the reminder--Sarah Blondin has a class series that I've gone through once. Time to repeat!
I’m hanging in there. I do feel numb most of the time but some days I am happier and there are moments of just feeling more free and so happy to be unencumbered by such an unfulfilling marriage

Truth told I do feel pretty lost and numb right now but I’m glad to be on this new adventure. I’m working to find humor in my life and have noticed I’m more open and I’m meeting more people.
Thanks for checking in with me! I hope that you’re doing really well. 🙂

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
