(For often) a man’s own angry pride Is cap and bells for a fool.” – Tennyson. Maud, VI.
I do not see any way home for me following the reveal of my lies and infidelity. C’s passive-aggressive revenge and my fracturing and betrayal have resulted in one post-discovery choice after another sandbagging opportunities for a future together.
However, what is true for me isn’t true for everyone. I think this is a great read.
Don’t let angry pride make you a fool.
