I know what that kind of relationship is about. I survived a four year one, lucky enough to find a great man who is patient with my insecurities which linger because of that relationship even after 18 years of marriage. I am so glad that you are out of it and moving on with better things! Blogging is theraputic and even though I am scared to blog about my experiences, your story helps others! And I will help myself to some of these olives too!
