There are days when it just guts me, and then other days when I just shrug and say, oh well, so he needs DH right now, that's fine. If I could only always feel that way, things would be better. I know I shouldn't take it personally. And I DO have a problem with continuing to try in the face of so many rejections but it's usually when I'm feeling stressed and like I just have no personal resources left to give. On my strong days, I hang in there with him and it usually pays off.
I just never imagined it would be like this!
