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, nancy Reply Jo Ellen Corcoran April 22, 2013 at 3:19 pm 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…… Reply Melody April 22, 2013 at 4:13 pm I needed to hear this!

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. Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyName * Email * Website Δ This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
