Communication I

These thoughts are a few days old, I scribbled them onto a scrap of paper after meeting the new shrink

I’m not quite sure how to communicate anymore. Saying nothing doesn’t work – you have to leave a relationship as soon as you run into problems – but I don’t think saying everything is a viable alternative.

The trouble is, I have no idea how to navigate the no-man’s-land in between.

These days with J I often find I say something I consider to be honest but not accusatory and his response is that I’m being selfish or dismissive.

I don’t have the first idea how to understand this mis-match, but it clearly belies the communication confusion I’m feeling.
