Guest RecumbentHeart Posted January 25, 2011 Share Posted January 25, 2011 Last night DH and I had one of those talks. DH had been trying to work on our relationship for years but it was only in the past year that I became motivated to do something so we've been working at it and had been improving greatly - better than it's ever been since we didn't start out "madly in love" and just generally didn't have a great start at all. He's been working a lot out of town over the past month (finally back on schedule) and all the progress had been undone for me going for so long with having no time to invest in what I needed to feel close, just what he needed (if you know what I mean .. and you probably do). He was hurt by the regression, I was hurt by his response and stopped trying to communicate my feelings and hence, downward spiral culminating in last night's talk. Well, it wasn't just that, it's been aggravated by some personal issues I'm having to deal with and trying to finally make peace with (abused and abandoned by father, previously divorced by a similar character) while watching my BIL go through the (almost) fairy-tale courtship DH and I never had. Yeah .. I'm a mess. Anyway ... it wasn't heated by any means ... but it was humbling and we didn't make obvious progress before bed. My husband has to be the most humble and patient man I know and tries so hard. Today he sent me an email entitled, "Care to dance, my love?" with this link inside: (CC, btw) I just want to bawl! So who has the Kleenex? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
