Lesson 1
A) 1) Actively committing yourself(myself) to change.
I want this change so that I can have a life free of lies and deception. To be open and honest with my wife and support her and listen to her wants and desires. A life not closed off from her or the reality of life. A life where my wants and desires are no longer at the front of the line. To be a better father to my kids and to be able to show them how a father should be.

2) Not allowing guilt/shame(embarrassment) to sabotage your(my) commitment to change.
This is a tough one for me because I have told myself "I have done so much to cause hurt and pain to others and have exposed my wife to high risk people as I am now that I can't fix it or make up for what I have done, so why try. I do have guilt and shame because of what I have done, but for me I have used the embarrassment of what I have done to stop myself from looking at and taking responsibility for my choice's, because I know that I have made destructive choice's.

B) Motivation to change.
1) I want to be proud of myself and be the good man I know is lost inside.

3) I want to be the man my wife needs me to be sorry her.
