When I’m Wrong

I read my Anniversary post a few more times today. I read some previous posts, such as Last Night’s Talk. In that conversation, Carol expressed her wishes for there to be no pressure to have sex, hoping it would come more naturally. Walking the Journey provided some insightful comments today about becoming a mother and how that affects your sex life. A lot to think about. All documented for me to reference as much as I need to.

I came home from work today and asked Carol how her counsellor appointment went.

“It was good,” she said with a smile. “She recommended that we have a little getaway, just the two of us.” Which we’ve been working on finding time for. It may not happen until next month at this point.

“Look, I don’t know if I’ve been clear about this yet, but I want you to know I’m sorry for pressuring you,” I said, regarding my sexual advances this past weekend.

“About that, she told me that I do need to calm down about it and try.”

“Maybe. But I was too anxious to get us through it. I went about it the wrong way and I’m sorry,” I told her.

“I know. It’s okay,” she replied.

Although my advances and anger led to a good, productive conversation, I had to accept that I did exactly what she didn’t wish for as we begin our new relationship together. I pressured her and that was counterproductive to healing the sexual component of our relationship. It required a proper apology in my opinion, so I offered that to her tonight.
