Once Burned....

I felt this strongly in my last relationship. Nothing... and I do mean nothing... was too much for me to give him, do for him, to him, on him, whatever.

But he abused his privileges... his "rights" as he called them. He went over the lines we had drawn together.

He insisted on ownership beyond what we had said was agreeable. He wanted total control... total dominance... he wanted an end to my humanness.

Now I have to say that I would be shy about giving that kind of control and trust again. I would hesitate... I would want to keep a bit of me for myself.

I do not think this would be bad... I think it would keep the power relationship in balance, or at least more in balance.

But then again... who the hell knows where my heart would take me if I fell completely in love again?

I love the same way.... I'm not sure I could ever love differently. As they say, I guess every rose has it's thorn. Wishing you all the best in your future relationships! xo
