Honesty is Sexy.
Wow, what an incredible post. That kind of humility and soul searching is an incredible strength, and i take my hat off to you for steppin' forward and finding the ways/patterns/choices that created unhealthy relationship dynamics. Been doin' a lot of this myself, and it's a pretty humbling experience ie - i didn't really know what i was doin', but now i can see where i've gone wrong and want to repair that in myself and my relationship.
you show a lot of courage and dignity in addressing this shit, and i think it's pretty inspirational. if we can't see where/how we need to grow, we never will.
