Though having serious conversations via txt sucks ass.
But it had to happen. A friend of mine and I were having a conversation about the different ways that people behave in their relationships. He has one partner who tends to withhold love as her participation in an argument (aka when there's something going on that she doesn't like). This morning I realized I do the exact same thing. And it's passive agressive, not particularly fair, and has to stop. Hence the serious txt talk. At least it was better than the witholding.
I guess it all comes down to time. The boy has very little. I have a lot more of it, but it's heavily constrained. I just need a big fucking house where we all can live. It can't be that hard, can it?
