I think that just the point that you talk about
this means that you are getting a handle on it. I think that you are working very hard to feel more secure and I think that you do. It is just that old habits die hard.
I agree with Erik. Men do assume that you know how much that they care and don't say it often. I am sure that he feels secure in the relationship and thinks that you do too. You two have been together for quite some time now and he figures that you know how much he cares. I can't emphasize that enough. Men just aren't the types to speak their feelings to us. If you find one who does, that would be rare.
I know that you can handle this. You have really come a long way.
You need to learn to relax in your relationship so that you don't feel the need to control it. Just let it flow. Things will work out the way that they should and I know that you will be happy. It is good to have control of your life, but you can't control others no matter how hard that you try. Once you get secure with yourself and your boyfriend, you wont feel this need to control things. I know that you can do this. And try to stay busy while he is gone. I know that you can do that too.
I hope that you have a wonderful day.
Luv and hugs, Karen
