    We SOs can get pretty down on ourselves.
    Which is shitty.
    But... I know we aren't without talent!
    Maybe we don't do it anymore...
    Maybe we think we had kids or whatever, and feel like "we are lame now" ...
    We aren't!
    We are beautiful talented women!
    We have special skills!
    Even if it's been In the closet for a few years!
    So ladies... I ask you

    .... What are you good at?
    What is your special talent?

    Singers and dancers and everything in between!
    All skills welcome!

    Even if you like to paint circles..
    I bet you paint the Best circles!

    I know I'm not lame, and frankly, my husband is extremely fortunate to be married to a woman of integrity, like me, who is standing by her marriage vows, regardless of what he did, to give him a chance to be the man he can be.

    But - I'll share my talents. :)

    I know how to teach Dyslexic kids (and people of all ages) to read. Most importantly, I help them with their dignity intact, or help them see THEIR amazing talents and gain back their confidence.

    I can train dogs. One of my former dogs was a registered Therapy Dog.

    I am a gardener/horticulturist. (But my lumbar back is shot - so no more - and that's okay.)

    I can drive a standard transmission - 6 speed.

    I am a trustworthy, loving, loyal friend.

    I am an artist (though I haven't done this in soooo long). That's going to change soon.

    I am talented with interior design.

    I'm a fabulous cook and the food I prepare is healthy.

    I know how to write grants and I used this skill in both literacy programming and dog rescue. I used my talents in many capacities as an unpaid member of a non-profit board which rescued dogs.

    I care about our world and its future.

    I can talk to anyone; I have good communication skills, and people seem very comfortable with me, even if we've just met.

    I'm smart (and just b/c my husband kept a double life for over two decades, it doesn't mean I'm not smart and perceptive).

    Shall I go on? LOL

    He DID NOT ruin me. I am freaking strong and I will heal and shine brighter than before!

    Thank you @LizzyBlanca
    My husband did not ruin me either.
    It's taken me a while to get here,
    But I have many strengths and talents too

    I am a good cook and baker...
    I excel with a challenge in the kitchen and love creating recipes.

    I am athletic, dispite my 'disability'
    I hula hoop and play tennis (my backhand puts it down)
    I fence (mask and everything) and I have started learning some about fishing.

    I measured on the scale for eidetic memory when I was younger, so it's more effective if I'm read to, then if I'm doing the reading myself ;)

    I am a good friend.
    The kind that always shows up.

    And I will be there early.
    Because early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable. :)

    I get ideas.... And then others get stories.

    I am a great hostess.
    I put on several parties throughout the year and entertain guests.
    I must do this well, I don't use social media at all.

    I know my way around a computer.. Cell phone.. I'm just sort of a closet nerd

    My heart is "too big"
    People always say this negatively.
    I am not always sure it is.

    I am a advocate for my childrens rights.
    I try to be a good mom. Everyday.
    No matter what.
    I designed my daughters "luxury living room chair"
    it took a year to pitch.
    I got it because I wowed them with the line - "even if you sit in a cubicle all day, you still want to come home and sit on a couch, right? Why would my kid who sits in a wheelchair all day at school not want to come home and relax, equally?"

    I also get asked why I don't do stand up comedy.
    I am apparently, really funny.
    But I usually just say "looks aren't everything"
    Bumbumcht! :)

  6. So I am a writer. I am creative. I am smart (especially with psychology). I have a big heart and am nice (and ppl have said those are not good things). I'm a good mom. I am organized. I am thoughtful. I used to write songs (two are on itunes and they've played on the radio!). I used to act. I used to dance and still love just dancing in the house. I'm trustworthy. Loyal to a fault. I play guitar. I sing. I can horseback ride (and miss it sooo much!) I used to play soccer (and miss it). I do photography (got a Nikon D7000). That's me.

    I know this thread isn't for us blokes but ...
    @Kenzi is an amazing cheerleader: the best.

    I'm a good singer. Not the best, but I was in an a capella group in college, I was in chorus in school up until I graduated High School.
    I'm a soprano. I can hit those high notes in songs that everyone's like "how?". I have a 3+ octave range. (Last time I tested it anyway - it's probably shaky at this point)
    These days I mostly just sing in the shower and in the car.
    I don't do much singing in front of my SO. I'm too on edge with him. I don't want to be, I want to sing.

    I am a fierce friend, as loyal as you can get. I'm a Hufflepuff, if that surprises anyone.
    I can multi-task like a boss, especially at work. I can be writing something down, listening on the phone, doing something on my computer, and transferring a call at the same time. (I'm a receptionist if it wasn't obvious lol)

    I'm not the best cook, either. But I'm really good at making things up. I call them my 'concoctions'. You wouldn't believe the things I can do with a bottle of sriracha and some chopped garlic.

    Animals love me. I know, that's not a 'talent' per se, but I'm proud of it.
    Except one cat, my friend's cat. He hates everyone but her. Everyone. I know. I tried.

    Most of all I am so very compassionate and empathic. Sometimes that can get me in a rough state of mind, especially when those around me are struggling. I can literally feel what they're feeling, and sometimes it scares me a little. But it's part of who I am.

    Thanks for the thread, @Kenzi - I think you're right, we all need a little pick me up right now.

    I’ve been reading your story . Just read your trigger list . I’ve never written one in fear of looking crazy / feeling crazy . Maybe I should ? Did you show him your list ?

    Your list is so much like mine . What. Has. He. Done. To. Me.

    The real question to healing...
    Is why has he done this to himself?
