Catfish, Thanks! Your post helped me further unfold my inquiry into the relationship of what I have been calling "tenderness" and "strength". (See the Book - Radical Acceptance - thread in the Spirituality and Polyamory section for more on that.) It takes strength not to react when feeling hurt. It takes both tenderness and strength not to embroil others in our acting out of our feelings of lack or insufficiency, jealousy..., etc. Your commitments to yourself and to others not only exhibit tenderness and strength but they also enlarge your embodiment of and grounding in these. Nice!
