I agree as well.
Taking space hasn't ever been a threat for me. It's simply not been an opportunity due to the percieved threat to others.
I'll leave my response at that.
In update news;
I asked Maca to consider an agreement between us for however long we are working through this.
I was clear that I need SOME sort of agreement-and I wrote out what I thought needed to be included in it-and asked him to let me know what he felt needed to be included as well.
We're supposed to finalize it on Saturday.
Two of the key things I asked for are
We don't discuss our relationship problems except for one day a week for a maximum of two hours, unless in a counseling appointment.
We don't discuss my relationship with Chris outside of counseling.
There's no way to tell so soon how well that will work. But, hopefully it will allow for a little breathing room for both of us.
