You have a way of being original every time you respond to someone. I wish I had found wiki and you in my darkest days when I had to be talking to someone all night long. Your phrases and lightness of being have been so inspirational. My favourite phrase of yours is talking about the ex as ''someone you used to know''. This idea was so new to me and now as it is happening through long-term no contact, I can just see that sunshine through the thicket. Thank you Mr Marshy.
My thanks too. In my early days your words of support and guidance were the first to help me look at what had happened as ''not my fault'', that I couldn''t put it right no matter what I did. You never told me to ''move on'', you simply pointed out the means that would help me do so. I benefited indirectly too by reading your contributions to other posts, and invariably something you wrote would resonate with my own situation and be of help.
From your posts too I learnt something of your own dreadful break up; even in the face of violent spite you retained compassion and dignity, and example is the best lesson of all.
