Thank you, GalaGirl for sharing that. It was helpful.
I had an epiphany in the middle of the night in regards to all that opening up has brought to our relationship and our lives. We've become closer and more appreciative of each others qualities. We can now discuss any topic no matter how painful, or embarrassing, or just plain silly it may be. We look forward to the times we can be together and we don't let those moments pass by without connecting like we may have done in the past. If it wasn't for the poly, I would not have let the last barriers around my heart fall away, allowing me to love him more deeply than I've ever loved anyone before in my life.
So, I need to celebrate polyamory and the gifts it has brought into my life. We are strong together and we make a great team. Loving others will not erode our base, only we can allow that to happen by not putting forth the effort to be connected and supportive.
It's going to be all right.
