Today, or more correctly yesterday, I’ve begun a moratorium on Lion suggestions. From now on, I will let a suggestion ruminate for at least three days before writing a crazy post like yesterday’s. That way we can discuss it further and I won’t go off half-cocked. I can’t guarantee this will cure everything, but it’s worth a shot.
It’s not like we don’t discuss things. I just get lost in the abyss sometimes. And not all of what Lion writes is what Lion wants. I forget that. The other problem I encounter is that he thinks about chastity and FLR a lot. I don’t. It’s only natural. It’s his fantasy. Most of my day is spent thinking about anything but chastity and FLR. When he presents me with another idea or asks me to read someone’s blog, it’s a lot to take in. Sometimes it’s overwhelming. I know he doesn’t mean for it to be. It doesn’t help when he asks me again and again what I thought of the idea. Well, truthfully, I haven’t thought much about it. When pressed, I’m likely to spew out posts like the one from yesterday.
I don’t see anything wrong with maintaining the status quo for a little while. Why do things have to keep changing? They don’t. It’s entirely up to me when and how we do things. I forget that. Lion just gets excited by things and I tend to get run over in the process. It’s not entirely his fault. I need to be able to raise my hand and let him know when he’s doing it. If you’ve been following along, you know that’s difficult for me. I don’t like confrontation.
Clearly we are better at communication overall, but I still fall off the wagon from time to time. We’re a team and in order for that team to function we both need to do our share. With little baby steps, we’ll get there.
