I cycled past a turning today, i know it is dangerous turning and cars come out quickly. It reminded me of when I said to my ex “be careful that turning is dangerous”. My motivation when saying this was as it sounds to warn him to be careful as I did not want him to have an accident, 100% innocent on my part. He however viewed this type of comment as me trying to control him. There were quite a few things that I couldn’t say for fear of him thinking I were being controlling when i was only making throwaway comments or trying to have a chat. I guess we were unable to have successful meaningless chats like normal couples do. X*X
I’m chuckling to myself reading your message Serenity, I wasn’t allowed to talk about myself either, either I felt that I couldn’t or he would look bored stiff which would put me off. I dont understand their mentality, what is wrong with us saying things of concern? in the end i was really reduced into what I could actually say or I had to really dress it up so that It didn’t cause offence.
