Growth: I began writing a text to Braden today, and I deleted it all, because I suddenly saw how I was creating suffering by wanting things to be different.
Instead of pushing my partner to connect with me by communicating his feelings, I really understood today how valid his experience is, and that I can stay out of his stories, and stop projecting my stories onto him. I can allow him to be who he is, love him for who he is, and also know that I can take care of myself in whatever way is necessary (and it doesn’t have to involve him at all).
I am not perfect at this, by any means. But I think that the more I can acknowledge the times that I am able to see how I am growing, the more I am able to grow.
