“It’s the only way I know how to love someone. If I bring a smile to someone’s face, I feel like I have shown them I love them. So, yes, I look to make her happy. Her happiness means the world to me.” And the therapist asked a question I could not answer then, “At what cost to you…?”
Giving that doesn’t take into account a woman’s desires, isn’t shared happiness.
It’s an obligation on her part to say thank you for a kindness without thought.
Each act showing a deliberate lack of understanding her soul.
Recognize retribution for your ignorance will cost you the relationship.
And it’s not her fault.
But there you’ll go, blaming her and all woman-kind.
