Wow that is quite the list. While I can see the wisdom in giving someone that much space, how do you do it? How do you sacrifice yourself to that extent? I am aching for some affection- I have done nothing wrong, no affairs, no lying, no temper. I dont know why my partner is angry. I would love to be disciplined enough to never show my yearning. I am just so lonely. When is it ok to need connection? When is it ok to ask for stability? Commitment? Fairness?
