My ex- and there are many reasons that he is now an ex- had the exact opposite reaction to few stories I let him read. He got angry, accusing, defensive, ugly, bitter and monumentally childish. Instead of acknowledging that we had things to discuss, suddenly everything was my fault. How dare I. Blah blah blah.

It was a huge hint of what was to follow. What a sad statement about his all important ego, as opposed to gaining insights about my inner world. But then, that is why he is an ex-. Your husband possesses courage. My partner didn’t.
