And then, well, are you so much expecting him to leave you that you are looking for the excuses before it has even happened?
I like your T and I trust him, just from what you have written.
Daisy, I think you're doing the work.
Old habits are hard to break, especially when we don't know if what we replace the old habits with will be enough.
I love analogies: it's like, here I am dangling with one hand from this frayed old rope that I've been hanging on to for years, and someone is holding out a hand to me saying, hey, you don't need that old rope anymore: take my hand instead. You won't fall, I promise. But my trustworthy old rope that has bitten into my hand, made me bleed, swayed me from side to side, smashed me into walls and kept me dangling over the abyss ... it's all I know, and that has its own safety.
Do you see what I mean? I'm not sure if I'm explaining myself well.
