Oh, by the way, I wasn't being brilliant or anything with my suggestion. I just put together a few sentences with what you wrote in your post. So many of us forget, somehow, that we all have the wisdom and tools we need, and we already know so much! So many times people come here and say, "Here's my story: this, this, that, that. Now how do I tell my partner?" And nearly every time, I, or someone else, will say to them, "Well, how about keeping it simple and just saying this, this, that, that?" And they go, "Wow, that's brilliant, thanks!" Heh-heh, it all came from you! So, who's the brilliant one?!
