I am in a relationship that is wonderful beyond words. Romantically speaking, this is the happiest I’ve ever been.
I’m not used to being this happy with a partner, having my needs met this fully, enjoying myself this effortlessly and consistently.
Lately, I’ve been trying to sort out some of the shock from the experience.
One thing more than others I am having the hardest time with:
I cannot figure out, for the life of me, why the person that Skyspook thinks I am is so much nicer, more trustworthy, and generally better than the person my ex-husband thought I was.
He believes in me and is genuinely curious about what I have to say in a way I’m not at all used to.
It’s true that I’ve grown quite a bit over the last year as a result of many experiences, but still, the difference is striking.
I like who I am when reflected back in Skyspook’s eyes – I was ashamed of the person my ex-husband thought I was.
How can this be?
