I need to show him love by giving him the support and reassurance he needs. My post really upset him. And it's because my new relationship energy _is_ running amok....I need to stop being selfish and balance things out a little better, I think.
Ahh yes, it's very important to tend to your existing relationships and make sure you uphold your commitments to the people already in your life. And, you may find with that, a lot of the other problems take care of themselves. i.e. if your husband is
being neglected, then insecurity about feeling neglected isn't irrational.
