I’m so glad it was helpful, Jeff! It was so eye-opening to me as well. I really wish I had known about it much sooner.
I’m good about circling back around, but I realize now that many people are not. I can understand why my ex-beau assumed the worst: his experiences indicated that I was avoiding.
Sadly, he never was able to understand my perspective and the relationship was unsalvageable. Thankfully, we wish the best for each other and I know I learned a lot during that relationship!
Many thanks for reading and responding!
