For me, no booze....and food is good, but....
Just goofing around with me after giving me a little hug or positive affirmation, making me feel GOOD, strong again....
I don't know how we would analyze this psychologically? Leading me back to my strength after soothing me a bit? But not like, "Okay, I'm leading you back to your strength, now." A bit more subtle.
Essentially, what I've illustrated is: My husband leads us to a place we both feel comfy.
Neither of us feels especially comfy:
- Dealing with feelings
- Showing empathy in the 'proper' way (whatever that means)
- Sharing thinking - we do it differently
So we lead each other back to our common Ne...where we can have fun and kind of...I don't know....Get rid of whatever in kind of a comedy/funny kind of way.
But each person has his/her own way of dealing with stuff.
