I'm so glad to hear that you were able to sit down and talk.
One of the hardest things for a slave or sub to keep in mind-is that Master/Dom isn't perfect either. They are Dominant, they are in charge, but they are, just as you are, human and that makes them imperfect.
Thus-We (Master/Dom) make mistakes.
Because of the dynamic of a M/s or D/s relationship, those mistakes can be even more hurtful for you (slave/sub).
That makes it even MORE important that We monitor ourselves carefully, always.
It also makes it even MORE important that you are patient and forgiving of our trespasses.
FYI-as I said in PM;
many poly people are not involved in 24/7 dynamics-and therefore their advice isn't based on the premise of the rules that one accepts when they are in a 24/7 dynamic.
That does not mean that they don't have good advice-but it does mean that you need to filter it through your own priorities and needs.
Hugs to you Angel-
ALL PEOPLE need to feel loved and secure.
Slaves need that reassurance even more so-because they have given up control to their Master, trust of the Master to care for them, nurture them and protect them is CRITICAL for their well-being.
It's GOOD that you talk about anything that threatens that trust between the two (or three) of you.
It's GOOD that he listens as well.
