Q- Have your deceptions caused you to not believe others so easily?
Q- Assuming that you were hiding your addiction from your wife (or partner) was there ever a time before your discovery that you felt compelled to come out with it, to tell the truth?
A Very Blessed 2012 to You All!
Last night, New Year’s Eve, some dear friends came over and I suggested that before running off to various other parties that beckoned, that we share three things with each other:
What one thing were we most grateful for in this past year?
What one thing were we willing to let go of in 2012?
What were we feeling brave enough to consciously bring into our lives in the upcoming year?
Q- Why do addicts seem so cavalier about whether the relationship survives or not? He does not seem to care unless he’s being kicked out or I threaten to break up with him.
Q- Why don’t addicts ask us partners questions to better understand what we have been through and what we now currently need from them? They seem to have no interest in anything but themselves.
Q- Please describe a genuine apology/amends-making. His apologies seem feeble and he does not seem in the least bit sorry that he hurt me, he seems sorry that he got caught.
