I feel like I am finally closing the door on this experience and moving forward. The conversation reminded me again, like my marriage to K and my relationship with C, I am more than the sum of my betrayal.
Shit can turn on a dime.
Labeling someone a slut - or a narcissist, predator, or whore - isn't rape, but the emotional intentions are the same. It's about taking someone's Power.
The pain will never go away. I will only find perspective for the pain. It is a part of me now. To hate the pain is to hate myself; to love myself is to love my pain.
