Hey @Love_and_Light I'm glad you enjoy this topic! It's great to hear that you're the kind of person who is willing to stand up for yourself. There are always some situations which are easier than others to confront. You can always work towards standing up for yourself next time.
I really appreciate you opening up and sharing this experience you had with your partner with his consent. It sounds like it was a big miscommunication which led to some hurt on both sides. The fact that you not only responded by being apologetic for what you did wrong, but also by affirming your boundaries in the relationship is really admirable. Accountability is such an important part of an apology and I'm glad you two were able to resolve this issue. I hope you were able to do something happy together afterwards to look after yourselves!
