I have a question for you.
I would say exactly the same as that about my mum but I sometimes wonder if it's not just her. I don't think I'm good at asking for help and maybe that is part of the slightly problematic dynamic between us.
@liberumcredo - Thankfully, my SO is very supportive and very good at providing validation normally. The plan changing thing isn't around ditching me to see other people - it's more that my SO has a very busy, stressful life.
Sometimes the stress leads to lack of good communication. Often I'm right to be annoyed about it - but if I was able to be less emotional and more constructive, we could deal with the problem more easily.
Thanks for the book recommendation - I'll check it out. Sounds good.
@SNeacail - Grand solution. Will think about how to apply it to my situation.
Thanks again, guys. xxx
Not sure how it is a question, but yes, you could be correct. I love asking for help when I need it though. Perhaps you would find it easier to ask a friend, rather than a faimly member? My friends are the closest when I really need help.
Of course, when it comes to poly, most my friends really don't understand it, which is why there are so many great people on a site like this. =]
