I am a big fan of Her Bad Mother’s Basement.
Today, a post I wrote months ago is posted. http://herbadmother.blogspot.com/2009/05/danno.html
It feels strange to read that since so much has happened in the last several months. (Because of so many submissions, posts get backlogged)
I’m now in such a good place with the best friend, now boyfriend. We’ve found a way to work through things as they come up. To communicate with one another and to the other our needs, wants, frustrations and fears. No relationship is perfect, but I feel we’re doing so well.
The relationship I was in at the time was a wreck. When things turned abusive, I left & ended it. I had a chance to take a look at me, my life, what I wanted, where I wanted to be.
I chose to start this relationship because I love him more than I know how to articulate; because I care so much about him. He is such a good man; he cares about me and for me. He is thoughtful and considerate. He is strong and sensitive, funny and sweet. He loves me, as I am, flaws and all. I feel blessed because I know he loves me for me.
We chose to embark on this journey because we love each other, because our lives are better together, because we compliment the other. We have fun together no matter where we are or what we’re doing. We have a passion for the other that grows each and every day.
So very lucky.
