Am thankful to have found this forum and this thread...sooo relevant! In recent days I've been slowly coming to the opinion that being friends with my LO is not going to happen. This both makes me a bit sad but at the same time grants me a little sense of freedom so that I may move on.
...looking for the way out.

Why would I want to jeopardise my marriage for a friendship? This is my inner child / ego with poor impulse control wanting to get another scoff at the trough. Its taken a long time to integrate my learnings and feelings into tacit knowings.
So easy to write 10 years on and yet so much water (and tears) under the bridge in reaching this place of peace and contentment.
