I imagine the situation a little differently than you, RP -- I imagine that she knows about his feelings, she's psychologically aware (she's got a PhD in the subject), she's on Vexxed's side and involved in helping him grow. Like he says, not as a therapist but as a lover. That's really good.
I hope I'm not mistaken in my assumptions, Vexxed. But if she really is encouraging and helping your personal growth, treasure the relationship.
He is correct. I told her that I had been feeling insecure.
She really is an amazing woman.
The problem is, I feel like I lowered my value as a partner by being insecure. I wanted to become a confident partner. Since that urge surfaced, I've realized that I need to become a confident person for my own good.
