It isn't easy, and I don't think I'll ever just be able to "let it go", but rather I think this knowledge has sort of become just a new aspect of our reality.
I mean, you do what you can, but I think it's like any *traumatic* or *negative* life emotions. You just sort of encorporate them after a while. Not that you will ever be in a place where you're OK with it...that's doubtful, but there will some times when it is better and you won't think about it to the same extent.
I don't know how else to put it.
I'm a very non-cosmetic, non-materialistic type person, and for me in particular I was very spiritual and particular about intimacy as the ultimate experience between a man and a woman. It hurts on such a very raw level that I'll likely never experience that full potential that man and woman are meant to have, especially because it's something I value so much. I don't know how to put it into words, but I'm sure that other women out there have some of the same feelings. Nobody had the right to rob my husband nor myself of what was rightfully ours.
