So, one thing is that I didn’t write this the night of the 3rd. But writing it now the morning of the 4th. So in a way that is a teaching in itself.
The real lesson on friday the 3rd was that conversation and open communication is always important to make people feel safe, mostly when we are talking about couples.
Lately my girlfriend and I have started the conversation of moving in together, And sure, it is a very big step forward, and there are many things that need to be considered. And it obviously makes both of us a little nervous.
And last night we had the chance to talk, and to exchange concerns, potential solutions and ideas, as well as go over certain disagreements.
Sure we didn’t solve all the problems, but we now know more about each other, and about what each others expectations are.
It’s very easy to just go about life assuming what other people feel about us or themselves, but I think we would all be better off if we would take a few minutes and actually ask about it.
I learned that last night.
