I posted a few days ago expressing some marked paranoia about my boyfriend avoiding me. The other night he invited me over, it was pretty late in the night, I was exhausted even before I made the 20 minute drive to his house. He was practically sleeping when I arrived. We were going to just sleep, and then young hormones kicked it into high gear, and we had sex. I'm sure many people can understand this. Sometimes you just need to feel close to someone and words get lost. I've been feeling unsure about our new relationship, and we seem to have a hard time talking about the hard stuff. Or rather, I do. I've always had a hard time communicating how I feel to others. I KNOW this is a problem, every time I try to sit someone down and address my concerns, I get choked up, and I physically can't say a word. I don't want to look like some wayward child who can't get through a conversation without breaking down and crying. This is supposed to be the best experience of my life, and I can't seem to open up and address problems when they arise. I don't want to mess this up. How can I get comfortable with expressing those difficult feelings?
