What If I Had Never Met You?

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 30, 2022 at 2:35 AM

A rhetorical question, since the person in question has not visited in more than a month. I'm pretty sure he read "Let's Just Kiss And Say Goodbye," read every blog he had ever wanted to read, and, as requested, left here forever.



I'm not going to complain. I was just in this constant cycle of checking here, seeing he had been here, being thrilled he was still here ... and checking here, seeing he had bee...

Don't Ever Watch "Cast Away" If You're In This Situation.

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 24, 2022 at 2:00 PM

So, at the very end of Cast Away starring Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt (and good grief, Mr. Big), Chuck Noland, the Tom Hanks character, newly lean from four years struggling to survive on a desert island, does this completely foolhardy thing, striking out to sea on a homemade raft, and is miraculously found and flown back to civilization.

The entire time he's longed for his fi...

The Person I Had the Affair with Was Really My Mother

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 23, 2022 at 12:50 AM

Everyone experiencing a romantic relationship that isn’t going well: Quick! Pull out a sheet of paper and jot down all the ways your beloved and your most troublesome and hurtful parent are similar.


 

Something tells me the list will be long.


 

In my case: My ent...

The Astrology of the Next Week

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 22, 2022 at 10:15 PM

After having this guy show up and read SO MANY BLOGS several weeks ago, and receiving so many card reading suggesting the person would show back up and want to talk, I went and looked at transits to our Davison for the weekend coming up ... because I know of something going on that weekend that would make it an opportune time.

Why Did It Take Me Seven Years to Give Up on My Affair Partner?

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 19, 2022 at 4:40 PM

OK, everyone can point fingers and call me an idiot. People get broken up with every day, and healthy people get over it in a matter of months, not years.

 

They also don’t choose to get involved with anyone married in the first place.

 

For me, the lure of my married guy held twin, powerful d...

And Yet Another Card Reading Hits Me Between The Eyes

Dirty Sally with Worthless, the mule.



So I'm watching a card reading last night, and this was said:

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 12, 2022 at 3:20 AM

A question from two days on: Why did I even write this?? (Addendum written May 14th.)


Why did I finally decide to give up on you and chase you out of here?


Because I know that we're never going to spea...

Great Affair Quote

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 9, 2022 at 2:50 PM

Because if you continue to treat your husband like a plant you need to water… he’ll wilt or pull up roots.

Really, Really Ill

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 5, 2022 at 4:50 PM

Well, I don't know what's happened. I've either caught Giardia at work, or food poisoning, or something like Norovirus is going around again and I have it. (Note the choice of PUKE-green lettering.)


I haven't been able to eat anything for four days. I have been basically confined to the couch (heavily padded with quilts and towels), barely able to drag myself to the bath...

Living What's Left, Part 2

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 1, 2022 at 2:30 PM

Therapist Samantha Rodman Whiten, writing to a reader about treatment-resistant depression, writes:

"In a sense, if you know that every day will be gray and stifling, but you are still strong enough to exercise, parent, and write to me, then you may be very well suited to try and find a new and transformative purpose in your l...

A Piece of Wisdom

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 26, 2022 at 9:20 PM

How can you tell whether an impulse is coming from your ego or your soul?

Your ego wants you to stay stuck and stay the same. Your soul wants you to move forward.

P.S. It's my understanding you have something you wish you had told me. What is it?

Constructing More About Astrology For A Certain Visitor ...

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 24, 2022 at 11:20 AM

Some of this post is going to be redundant. Some of the text is from a new page I'm preparing for the astrology tab of this site. But, I'm putting it here for a reason: A certain visitor does not visit any other page except the blog. If I expect him to find it on the astrology tab, I'll be waiting for a long time. 


But, it's going up here for the following reason:

Received this piece of information about you, (in case you ever come back here again.)

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 23, 2022 at 7:15 AM

This came out of a card reading: You're trying to pretend the past didn't happen to you, when nothing's going to get better unless and until you go back and heal it. We're talking about your ACOA childhood, here.


I already told you this. :| Maybe start listening, before you DIE?
