... i think he is terrified. i know he is. it feels like we are at a crossroads in our relationship - do we go deeper? or do we pull back?
... i am scared too about whether he is capable of supporting me if we were to try this, and i am scared of where it might take me, but i want to try.
... thing is i suspect (rightly or wrongly) that he will pull back from emotional pain, cut off just when we are about to make breakthrough, and stop us getting beyond that pain to the learning. i need him to be really committed.
... he obviously isnt today but i wonder if i give him time and space will he arrive at a place where he feels brave enough to try? ...
