That is wonderful. One of those “epiphany” moments in life – I know you will always treasure that memory.

OMG, that is so amazing!!!!!!!!So glad your FI makes you feel so secure and safe..sometimes i have the urge to say to my husband: “Please hold me and tell me it’s all right. That i can sleep at peace because no matter what may come out of my mouth, it won’t affect you or how you love me. Tell me you’ll keep my bad dreams away..”

That’s awesome! I definitely had an (emotionally) abusive ex and really had to unwork what he did to my head.

The biggest thing, I think, is that I dress more revealing than I used to. Not that I have ever dressed revealing, and even now I’m pretty modest, but because of my ex, I never wore shorts. Ever. I went to a festival in jeans one year and almost passed out from the heat. My ex used to tell me how ugly my legs were and that I needed to get a tan and hide some of the ugly (I’m super pale). FI got me over that–he was so proud when I finally bought (and wore) a pair of shorts, haha. My ex also used to make fun of my “small” boobs (B cup) and would tell me to wear a padded bra so that I didn’t “embarrass” him. I’ve gained a little weight and gone on BC since then, so I’m a small C now, but FI loves my boobs and wishes I’d “show them off” more lmao.
