I did it. We talked. And it went far, far better than I expected. We actually used dialogue and "I" statements and came to a mutually satisfying conclusion. That, in and of itself, is a huge thing, a testament to the little bit of progress we've been making. I feel more empowered to voice my mind, and I think D feels more comfortable with the level of honesty we need and are trying to use. Now, on to the next day, and continuing to work on me and my responses so that next time, I can put the things we talked about into action.
