Just say the word.

Also, please talk to me about Exercise 2 - so I know this is still a thing you are thinking about. I don't mean to be naggy, it's just I worry it'll get forgotten or be avoided because it's inconvenient time-wise.

exercise 2 was indeed discussed and i think the discussion was successful in making me much more fully aware of what the exercise represents to you. you were able to identify and express a certain amount of residual anger that you are still burdened with. this is perfectly warranted and due. i am now more aware, and sensitive to the fact, that you are still carrying this hurt that i have caused. i have not shied away from my ownership and responsibility in this. what i am hoping to demonstrate now is my ownership in trying to help you heal from this. i am committing myself to you to be present in this entire healing process.

Thank you for letting me get it all out, and hearing me, in a verbally safe place. I know you are in it for the long haul; I still carry around some insecurity, mistrust and anger, and sometimes those nasty things rear their heads when even I least expect it. I'm committed to this process as well, so as to let that all go and strip our marriage down to just the good stuff.

so that expectations are clear, this saturday evening is planned for exercise 2. i am still working out my personal twist on this as i believe that i understand the spirit of the exercise, but would like to interpret it in my own way, which i think is more relevant to you as an individual and to us as a couple.

"Your personal twist" is my favorite kind of twist. Seriously, you get it & I know you do now. I'm just happy to have an evening solo with you and your honest efforts, whatever they may be.

i think we (finally) accomplished exercise 2. it actually ended up being fun. i think one of the most important pieces of progress was that you were able to speak to me the next morning about how you felt about saturday night's attempt.
