I just got into work and read your post and it made me smile! I am so happy that things are going well for you guys. I know what you mean about Matt having more faith in you than yourself right now, I feel the same way with Nisha.
Doesn't it feels so good when you are being open and transparent to somebody to who loves you and they accept you more for it? I used to be afraid to open up to Nisha thinking she would realise I was a slut and leave me, but on the contrary, the more I opened up the more she loved and trusted me. I still have work to do on myself, but I've realised again that I bottle feelings and that bottled feelings eventually come out with such (often negative) force that it results in misunderstandings and arguments. So I'm making a real effort to express myself clearly and calmly these days and so far it's been going great. I really want to keep it this way.
Here's to a healthy and happy future!
