Again from the Fam & Fri forum, and it's Danny this time, expressing something I hold to be so true.
Thanks Danny.

Bobby was having a big long vent, and a very good vent as well!

And I liked this bit best.

Bill said something simple, but rock strong, and I want to post it here:

Quote:
Bless you and your courage.
Bill
thank you Bill, that little thing means a lot to me and the others I'm sure.

A year ago, I would say nothing of what I mean if I think it will sound negative. Credit this site and the confidence I have gained through it to be able to say anything like this now.
That is what this place is about, good for you!

A quote from Fhorns that speaks volumes.

Quote:
My sex life has been with the strangers in my head. FUCK! That's real.
I think most of feel that way, and that's sad.

In a reply to the topic posted Andrei used few words to make the point,

well done,

You sound like you are doing rude book report. Who cares of what someone look like? I am greatful that people work for this site, to keep it here. Maybe you need to observe more and speak less.

there's a terrific topic on the Family & Friends forum about why partners are attracted to, and why they stay with, Survivors.
For guys like myself, it's a question I often ask.
I'd like to think Sunshine2 speaks for my wife and all of us lucky enough to have someone we love standing alongside of us.

I am very new here and it was a bit unnerving even looking over what is on the site, but I hope it is okay if I draw attention to what I thought was a remarkable passage in Glaukos' journal - which is full of remarkable things:

Quote:
I can see the letter in my hand. Dad sees it and looks at me. All I have to do is give it to him. Heís waiting. My arm moves through the dark & the letter is shaking in my hand Ė please help me. Dadís hand is on the letter & I feel it sliding away. The paper is cold. I could grab it back & run but I donít. I want him to know. I have always wanted him to know. Now he does. Nobody can hurt me now. I have just done the most important thing in my life.
I don't blame my own father for what happened to me or for my inability to tell him; it was a different time and I have no memory of any resources to help me, or even of any recognition of child abuse as a problem. But when I see this kind of courage and passion for life I think maybe there is hope after all! I of course hope that my own son never has to come to me with this sort of letter, but if he does I hope the relationship we have built gives him the same sort of trust that I see here.

Larry
