My man is so fantastic! He is a sexy masculine man, enlightened, generous, supportive, brave, my solid rock and my soft place to land. But I wear the poor guy out. I fall into these pesky little habits (the root cause I’ll explain in a jiffy), he gives and I refuse, he proposes, I argue, he offers, I push back, I talk over him, talk too much, I stay in my head and take charge. I put my elbows OUT and self-protect. Here he is, this great guy- trustworthy in every way- he just wants to take … [Read more...]
