I head to my therapist in 5 minutes so here it goes:

How do I know when someone is meeting my emotional needs versus knowing that my emotional needs come down to me? When I’m with the gf things are great, but when I’m apart I feel like I’m out of sight/out of mind.  Is this just me or is there a missing piece?  I get the impression that she is content with the status quo, but I feel edgy and unwanted. That’s a bad combination for a compulsive like me. I don’t want to make the knee-jerk reaction, so I’m taking my time. I need to figure out where I end and the other person begins and what level of “in between” I can take to feel content.  The tough nut is that “when I feel off there’s something wrong with me” maybe I need to be more assertive, maybe I need to quit bellyaching, maybe I need to run.

My 5 minutes are up, I need to run…
