There is a place to express this passion. And, I didn't mean (if this is what you were referring to) that I always want to shove the feelings away and not express them. Or that I'm denying them in some way. But I'm not denying them as much as, in the moment, deciding what is the best course to keeping communication open with someone I love very much. I feel so much that it can overtake me if I don't take some time to reflect on those feelings. The feeling will always be there. Sometimes it's just a matter of waiting (intuiting) when is the best time to let it all go and say what's in your mind or your heart. I hate to create bad feeling in a relationship to satisfy a craving to vent (believe me, I've done it). Venting is a bolt-the-doors option, the ego taking control. I've tried to be patient (wait a while and things will change) and then talk. It's because I'm so passionate that I've tried to adopt this approach. Otherwise, I can be hell on wheels.
Hi, Desperado. Am I remembering correctly that you tend to be attracted to women who are vulnerable and need you to kind of help them/fix them? Is there a way you could consciously try to change that pattern? Vulnerability can be an appealing concept, but those women are usually going to come with a lot of baggage.
Anyhoo, welcome back!
Yes Tallulah....WOW, great memory.....therefore I'm reading a book The White Knight Syndrome
Trying to stop the pattern
