there hasnt been many times in my life in which people that have come along have made me feel so.. nourished, on every level.
...earlier today I was in my bfs room about to log on & blog about how horrible I was feeling about my social anxiety. how it was affecting not only me, but now him as well. he had asked me to go to lunch with him & his father. this equaled instant panic mode for me. I've had the bare minimum of interaction with his father the days that I have been here. severe social anxiety & along with being easily intimidated by strong male figures has not made it very easy at times to be in this situation. he came downstairs right as I sat down & as usual wouldnt take just an excuse for my feelings. he asked me if I trusted him. after replying yes he told me he loved me & that he would never put me in a situation that would be emotionally damaging. reminded me in my own words that I wouldnt be going through this if I didnt need to, if there wasnt something to learn. to look at it as an opportunity for growth. after confessing what he already knows; how much I hate being this way, how low it makes me feel, how ashamed I am to be this way, how sorry I was.. & after convincing myself there was no way in hell I was going to go, that I'd rather run & hide from my demons like I have for so many years, than fight them face to face.. I reluctantly agreed. he told me never to apologize for who I was, that I would feel better after pushing through this. I, on the verge of tears disagreed. & honestly I'm not sure what made me go.. the fact that I cant see myself ever being without him, that this meeting & hanging out with his family thing is something I will have to get over if I ever expect things to be permanent between us. maybe somewhere inside me I knew that all he wants is for me to be happy. & that even though I said I would have felt better running & hiding, he knew that I would have spent the next few hours beating myself up in disappointment of my failure. ...he was right. I feel more at peace now than my fear would have allowed me to see.
never in my life would I have imagined I could find a man so.. perfect. the way he loves me, encourages me, feeds me emotionally, mentally & spiritually. I look at him & am still blown away by the depths of my love for him. I couldnt be happier. nor could I ask for more..
