This is what my girlfriend said to me a week ago. I feel the same way about her. I am building an intimacy between us that we have never experienced.
I am appreciating her true beauty. Her physical beauty blows me away sometimes, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Her true beauty is within. She is the most understanding, patient, kind-hearted, loving, vulnerable, funny, and life-filled person I have ever met. It is such an honor to share my life with such an amazing person.
I am a changed man. A more honest man. A more determined man. A better man.
It’s amazing what changes come into your life when you stop lying to yourself and to others.
I have been masturbating to porn compulsively since I was around age 12 so it’s been about 13 years of struggling with this addiction.
I have been actively trying to quit for about a year or two, but it wasn’t until a couple months ago that I got serious about it. I started seeing a therapist, which was crucial to my recovery.
The benefits have crossed over into every area of my life and have positively impacted every single relationship in my life. It doesn’t solve all of life’s problems, but it makes living seem actually worth it.
