To my metamours,
And I’m sorry. For every offense I have made, for every time I made you feel left out, for every time something I’ve done or said something that has hurt, offended, or made you uncomfortable – I am so very sorry. I am sorry if I missed you in my round of apologies for the mess I made a couple Saturdays ago. I want to say this all upfront.
I am consistently awed by you. You have gone above and beyond in welcoming me into your ‘cule. You are one of my blessings that I can count every day. You inspire me to do better. You inspire me to face my concerns and challenges head on, to grow beyond where I started about 7 months ago. It has not been an easy path, sometimes for any of us, but thank you for choosing to walk it with me, for however long we get to walk together.
Thank you for the wisdom you have shared and the experiences you have conveyed to me. Thank you for occasionally being my sounding board.
You make me happy from several different angles. I am happy that you make our shared partner happy. I am happy when you are happy in your relationships. I am happy when we all get to spend time together, whatever we’re doing. I am very happy that I have been given the chance to get to know you. I love seeing the love you have for our shared partner in action. You have reminded me what compersion feels like. 🙂
This is not the first time I have had at least one wonderful metamour, including a couple metas that are still my friends – a bond that lasted even after the end of the relationship. It is, however, the first time I’ve had more than one amazing meta.
