| | Finding emotional detachment challenging
Have been trying to slowly detach emotionally from my husband. I know that this is the next step that I have to take. He has reacted by mimicking my detached manner, then suddenly being kind and loving, then demanding and ****y. Now we're back to somewhat detached manner. It would be so easy to believe that the kind loving person is the real one and that the other two are not. However, I am not fooled this time. It's easy to see the cycle when other people have weighed in. Just finding some periods of sadness when I wish he was something that he was not. Although I'm sad, I'm feeling stronger.
