Meeting your needs

36340334_3ad0f21583_zThis month is all about being a bit selfish. Not in a bad way, of course, but it can be all too easy for poly people to spend so long worrying about whether or not their partners are happy that they forget to look after themselves. Making sure your own needs are met is just as important as looking after all the loved ones in your life. As always, we welcome your response posts if you have your own thoughts on this theme.

    i would really like to talk to someone in a poly relationship about what it is like. over the phone would be nice. i am newly in one. it has taken a hell of a lot to get my head round the idea and i did it because it makes my wife happy and raises her self-esteem to be poly which is important to me. i have let go of my control of emotions and preconceptions and become open to these new ideas but it was the most scary confusing thing i have done and the worst emotional pain i have felt in my life to get here. i feel i am a better person for sorting out my head but i just dont know what i want from this. i dont need it, i’m happy with my wife. was it really worth it for me if i dont want anything from a poly relationship. i see there are advantages but im happy with what i have. its all so simple to her but baffling to me. can someone please help me out.

      just got some advice. i need to go get a hobby. that simplifies things. i dont need to do anything. realised poly is complicated and confusing and fun which is the point. but i think i would rather get a hobby right now, might do this later.
