@mary , i'd love to keep sharing about all this if it will support you, it helps me too. and yes- he is the driving force and it's so helpful. i've always been looked to to be the driving force but don't have that capacity and so have been beat up about it. this is much better for me.
Thank you. My last break up really gave me a lot of insight into myself and my patterns. It's great but also has put me at a loss as to what my needs are and how to find that happy medium. I have let others be the driving force, but never liked where they drove me to. I think it's too early for me to get into another relationship right now, but I am feeling a little drawn in.
i understand. i have found that with awareness, relationship is a great way to feel things out when i have the attitude of wanting to grow and understand myself.
my last relationship was invaluable although frequently caused me confusion and some fear and discomfort. and we remain friends for that reason. the intention was good!! and it taught me so much, and i feel launched me into the relationship i am now very confident and comfortable with.
it's all good, all of the interactions that challenge us, in my opinion!
