Do you use your blog to communicate to your partner?
Don’t worry, this isn’t a deep and meaningful post full of dramatic skylines and prosaic monologue! I’m just curious if you are in a similar position.
Missy and I have the ability to communicate quite well (although there’s always room for improvement) and not all thoughts can be captured and translated at the time. This can either be that I was not listening properly, or that was listening properly I was not or possibly listening I was not properly. Either way, the message sometimes does not get through, especially if it’s subtle and I am thinking about something else! I’m stacked that way, please don’t throw bricks!
What I have discovered over the past two years is that a lot of missy’s inner thoughts relating to our relationship are laid out bare for me to see in her writing. Not only do I see evidence of her concerns and successes, I also see her imagination that is fuelled by talking to others or reading their tweets and blogs. It is wonderful to read a piece of her writing and think ‘wow,’ that’s hot!
I should point out that I do not have an issue with her sharing this, in fact I welcome it. It allows me, in my own time, to read and inwardly digest. I also provides me with a written record of how she was feeling and where she thinks she would like to go next on our journey having taken time to develop her thoughts in a creative way.
When I look back at my own ramblings over the years I see many examples where I have done the same, and not always unintentional. Yes, I do know that missy reads everything I write, as do I for her, which I suppose provides a subliminal reserved seat for each other in our theatre of life.
Therefore, I wonder if you are the same. Do you use this medium to communicate with your partner in some way or is this just for everyone else?
