Thanks for your honesty. I find myself in a similar place not infrequently as my response to being stressed, I'm fortunate that I also have someone who cares about me and calls me in shit, in addition to being supportive and understanding. I happened to be reading a book last night that I'm finding quite interesting which is giving me some good insights about the responses we have both been exhibiting. It's by Gabor Mate titled the Myth of Being Normal. It just acme out recently and was well reviewed in the Wall Street Journal, which is how I found it. I think you and Deb might both find something there to stimulate thought.

Be well,

J

It’s the lucky few who have a partner who will tell you you’re being dickish and then ask you to lay with them <3

Beautiful song in your video!

I do feel very fortunate. Deb and I spent 5 years talking/chatting online and 2 years hanging out continuously as friends before we became a couple. We tend to be brutal on and with each other. It mostly makes us laugh. But we keep the fact that we are on the same team front and center. Don't knowingly hurt your teammate.. it doesn't make sense.

I completed the lyrics for the song this morning. At least, I think they're done. I'll go through them over the next couple days and see what shakes out.

That’s good advice. “Same team” is important to remain aware of. Looking forward to hearing the rest of that song!
