No, that's helpful in itself, to not feel like a freak!
Does it become more ... natural? It felt so wrong
this morning. I mean, I knew he would feel the hug in the same way that I felt the thank you, but it felt
like I was being manipulative or something.
Quite frankly, it's a big old trigger for a couple of painful things from my past.
*sigh* More self work ...
