Anger & Acceptance

June 24, 2010 at 2:07 am (Fróðleikr) (, , , , )

My better half can be extremely stubborn. Whatever the consequences for him, and however I grieve for the opportunities he has missed, I am grateful.

He has taught me to be less controlling.

I’m not, by-and-large, controlling. I like to look after people, if I can, and I often let that overwhelming desire to please and support get the best of me, especially when the attention is not wanted, nor needed.

I think it’s genetic. My mother is the same.

I have found new peace. My life is my life, and your life is your life, and even though we’re linked inextricably, I will not live my life through you, nor will you live yours through me. We are separate people, and we thrive that way.

I love you, sweetheart.
