Well, it has been about a month since my first post here. My mind was on fire with the charms of a new friend, and I was trying to make sense of how I was feeling and put some perspective on things in my life and relationship with my wife. On the way to work this week, I thought about how thankful I was for some of the perspectives that I found here, and from reading other people’s stories. I would never have gotten that kind of keep insight otherwise. The anonymity here allows people to speak openly and freely about the raw, unfiltered thoughts and emotions they are having.
One of the lessons I learned in my life is how much humility and gratitude can better your life, but you have to remind yourself of this from time to time to prevent yourself from becoming selfish and jaded. That said, I feel like a lot of progress was made this month. Things are better. As the emotional climate leveled out, I realized that I still have a lot of work to do, but I just wanted to take a moment to be thankful, and some of you may have indirectly contributed this.
