I watched Tiger this morning in his news conference.  I couldn't help but predict what I thought he would say.  I was right, he did own up to his indiscretion and made the obligatory comments.

But I was moved by his vulnerability and the level of shame and embarrassment.  I was sad for him.  Sad for his mom.  Sad for Elin and his kids.  Whether or not he and Elin can recover from this, once again, Tiger steps up as a leader and takes it on the chin.

He takes responsibility for himself and I wish him all the best in his search for peace and reconciliation.  Thanks for that Tiger.

What moves me the most is that each of us has something. Everyone of us has something we have done or are doing that could embarrass us if we were in the public eye.  We may not have been unfaithful in such a flagrant way, but we sure have made some HUGE blunders in our private lives.

I hope that Elin and Tiger can find answers to all that has happened.  Whether they are married or not, they are parents of itty bitty kids who need them to recover and restore balance.  True Love can be romantic love and often is.  But True Love is something else.

True Love loves in spite of error. True Love honors growth and change.  True Love teaches that mistakes are not fatal.  True Love sustains during horrible circumstances.

I wish Tiger all the luck in the world.  I was so disappointed in him at first.  Today I am compassionate and send him love and support.  Having to do all of this in the public eye makes a tough situation even worse and I appreciate his words today.  I am still a fan.

Have you been betrayed by someone who you thought was your True Love?

    • This is a very nice post!

      To answer your question.....yes! I thought my 1st hubz was IT and obviously that didn’t work out. For the longest time I didn’t believe in fairy tales and happy endings.

    • heart Good Post Catherine.
      I personal have never done anything like that but I can’t say that about my future ex-husband. I only wanted the best in our marriage and I gave it my all but, not even that was enough.
      I have researched this to death, my STB ex had one that I know of and for the life of me I can’t wrap my head around all of the one’s Tiger had. I have read that it takes 3 to 5 years to regain trust back into a broken marriage personnel I have wasted 17 years with this man and to waste another 3 to 5 years to think in the back of my mind that he might do it again. Personnel is a waste of my time, but I can understand why Elin might want to try, after all she has his two adorable children. I heard on the entertainment show that she is looking at everything, cell phone, emails, anything and everything and why shouldn’t she, Mr. Wood’s is going to be under a microscope until SHE finds the way to trust that she once gave him. I hope she can deal with that, because every time I looked at my husband after I found out was with destained. And the fact that he had been lying to me this whole relationship didn’t help either. frown  These kind of articles hit me to the core sometimes I just have to vent heartbreak

    • Great post. I believe everyone has the right to redeem themselves and only the two of them knows exactly what went on. If they can get past this then I wish them success  at getting back to what made them a couple in the first place.

    • Once trust is broken in any relationship, it is difficult to regain. Someone who had as many affairs as Tiger cannot be trusted today or ever for that matter. His eye will always stray and it will take incredible self control to suppress this urge. No one really changes and there is something to the saying, once a cheater always a cheater, or past behavior is a precursor to the future.  If I were her, I would get the heck out of Dodge, find someone who does not have the "cheatin" gene and carry on. There isn't a doubt in my mind that once all the dust has settled he will try it again, only he will be more clever about it. I know this sounds bitter but I can honestly say I have never seen a couple capable of carrying on after a betrayal of this magnitude, nothing is the same.
      We all have ghosts in our closet and I am in no position to judge Tiger, but for his wife's sake and her future happiness, move on, this guy isn't worth it.
