    Hall of Famous ENA Quotes*

    Hi All*

    As I've travelled along this healing journey and worked these forums I have come accross so many great quotes from posters.

    There is a truck full of famous quotes out there that will help you through...Stick 'em on your fridge or your bathroom mirror etc...

    One of my favourites is: "When you're going through Hell ~ Keep Going!" - Winston Churchill.....

    But this thread is for great quotes that you may have come accross from the deep pool of amazing ENA posters....Hopefully it will become a carthartic thread to read through....*

    Here's a true one from Ed:

    And this one gave me a chuckle:

    If you find any of the quotes helpful I really do recommend printing or writing them out and sticking them where you can read them everyday*

    Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this great forum, and even bigger thanks to those that stay around to help others when they can*

    Stay Strong Everyone.

    Aww, thanks Avman*....My very first sticky! \\

    And yes...Big congrats on the 10 Year milestone*

    When I was instantly replaced many moons ago, one of the most helpful posters was CrazyAboutDogs*

    Here is one quote from her that has always stuck with me:
    Originally Posted by Crazyaboutdogs

    Granted my ex's rebound actually worked out, but this quote really helped me and I still agree with it*

    Sunshine!

    Great thread idea!!

    Here is one I LOVED by my good friend Love1336 and it's SO true!

    And this analogy is one of my favorites!!! I was actually telling someone about it recently because it's one of the best analogies I have found and the poster explained it so wonderfully!!

You whinge for a little, 'cus we all love a good whinge, but then you reluctantly try choc chip cookie dough. Om nom... Oh my god. Honeycomb can piss off! This new flavour is the bomb!! Head back in the following week and both honeycomb and choc chip cookie dough are there... You look at the 2 and whilst you remember the good times with honeycomb; that particular hot day where it cooled you down, that time you dribbled it on your shirt or even that time your friend pushed your face into it. But you don't want it. It's not for you anymore. You've moved on. You're a cookie dough man/woman now. You couldn't be happier. But if honeycomb had've stuck around that week you could've had a very mediocre ice cream eating career because you never would've had the guts, or the opportunity to try a different flavour.


    Life's short guys. There are other flavours of ice cream out there. But for now I suggest you all go on a diet from it. Don't force anything.

    Although this is not a direct quote from an ENA member, I thank [JoeK_19] for referring us to it because I will never spell "embrace" the normal way again after reading this online profile

    Being replaced and instantly forgotten, these are some of many quotes on this forum that helped in my situation.

Think about how sad it is for the other woman - she was chosen because she was 'more convenient.'

    When it all comes down to it, it isn't about CHEATING. It's really not. It's about that person's personality, allowing themselves to make poor choices, their disregard for you and your feelings, their inability to communicate, and - above all - the fact that this sort of treatment is not a quality I want in a lover.

IMO.

It is easy to get over someone who has shown themself to be nasty and inconsiderate..but it is not as easy to get over their actions towards you. What you need to focus on is that if he did this to you then chances are he was not the decent guy you thought him to be and likely this is how he operates in life in general. So this is really not about you, this is about how he deals with things and how he interacts with people. In other words, to let go of the pain you have to realize that this is really his problem not yours.
