I so often find myself reading about the triumphs of others here, and it gives me such hope for all of us. I know how difficult so much of just "living" can be, and it is so nice to celebrate when someone does well.

Today, my best friend, also a survivor, faced a very difficult hurdle. He did beautifully, and I am so overwhelmed with pride. His accomplishment may seem routine for so many, but knowing his past and his fears, it is tatamount to leaping a tall building in a single bound! I have never been prouder of anyone in my life.

His accomplishment today made me reflect on all of us here. We are all different men, with different specific issues, but the one thing we have in common is our committment to moving forward in our recovery - to face those awful fears and insecurities - to overcome the difficulties our abuse has caused.

I just want to take the opportunity to say how proud I am of my beloved friend, and also, of each memeber of this site. It is an honor to count you all as friends


Dan

Hi Dan:
I am proud to say that I am also a friend of yours. I am grateful to know you and appreciate what you have said to me on MS as well as in person. Hopefully our friendship will grow as we continue in group together.
