The Hard Times

I need strength.  And reassurance.

At this point in our relationship, there have been relatively few rough days.  But work and personal change have been creating opportunity for his mood to shift to the negative.  And I feel powerless.

And when I feel powerless I try to control the situation.  I try to "make" him feel better.  I know well enough to let him go through what he needs to go through and just be there if he decides he needs me.  But the waiting is what makes me anxious.  I try to engage him sometimes, but when he's not in the mood to talk, or worse, in the mood to be mean, it takes great patience and fortitude on my part not to take what he says to heart.

Advice and/or kind words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.  And if you have Borderline Personality Disorder, I would very much appreciate your insight.

Many thanks.
