Thanks. As a betrayed husband

Thanks. As a betrayed husband, I've been both challenged and encouraged by your video blogs since joining AR in May. This is my first time to comment, and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for your boldness and vulnerability. Just... thanks, man!

means a ton you'd say that

Stuffing Down

Thank you Samuel for doing these blogs! I can definitely relate to what you shared about stuffing down the trauma. I believe now that I did that with our first discovery. Sadly, we've had another discovery 4 years later. But this time around I am not stuffing. I am feeling and grieving and working through the trauma. It is so hard. So, so hard. I appreciate your honesty and vulnerability in sharing your own experience.

soconfused...

thanks so much for the compliment. i'm so glad to hear you're working 'through' the trauma. not around it. it's a journey and the trauma will change you for the better if you do the hard recovery work and use it for your healing and personal restoration. i'm so glad I could encourage you at least a little. take care, be brave and don't quit.
