yes.. that is right. Better and more concisely worded too.

this is the trick i guess. i'm having some trouble allowing for him to make a mistake.. sad eh? How can an act seem so innocent and well meaning and so unforgivable at the same time?

as he describes it "my antenna are up" when it comes to causes for mistrust.

>Whether it does or not, I know that it hurts even if his motivations are good.

it does. :o( it really really does.

> But that's me, and based on my therapist's point of view no doubt. You can disregard it entirely if it's no use to you.

it's of use.. it all is.. compare, contrast, re-examine. i value your input. i am mulling and trying to wrap my head around it all.

i should sleep tonight.. i really should.
