    A very thoughtful monologue that came across as a dialogue because I felt included in it. In listening to you, I realized (again) how many relationship ‘issues’ are self-created in our ego-need to ‘put things’ on others. You’re so right …. it isn’t fair.
    From another work in progress,
    much love,

    wow.. I didn’t hear anything past that you’re wanting to start a family!!
    I support you being a clear vessel for the little one to nestle into.. and your small cup of coffee, cracked me up!! Stories?? it’s all about the stories, so I keep most of them filled with joy.. this morning tho, I was playing with a story of smashing someone’s head into the dirt because he had hurt one of my girls.. so, as I looked into your eyes (thank you for the video) I got back in touch with my soft side and cried……

    Reblogged this on Wholeheartedness and commented:
    Treating people like an ‘unreal other’ — a two dimensional person that is just a projection of ourselves — brings suffering to both; you and the other person…

    This is a hard one. I don’t want to admit it, but I do this to my husband. When we met we were both going through so much and I believe I looked to him as my salvation from the bad choices I had been making thus far. Now, 10 years later and I find myself constantly saying to him that I am not happy with who he has become and where our relationship has gone and that he promised to be a certain type of person and didn’t live up to it. I believe as I am getting to know myself better, that maybe he didn’t promise that. Maybe I put it on him. Not to say he hasn’t allowed his insecurities and issues to color his moods and in turn our marriage, but I can’t truly remember him ever saying the things I have told him he said. Maybe I did put him on a pedestal because he was the first man who didn’t treat me like shit so I worked his story into my story and made it into something else. Like I said, I hate to admit it but that feels like a pretty big truth to me.
