It’s been a mammoth week here for me, and with 2 exhibition launches this week and a major sculpture project due on Monday… it’s not going to ease up anytime soon. It’s getting challenging to find time to write the blog! Over this last week I’ve had the wedding of two dear friends (to each other), a friends mental health crisis, vandalism happening around my home, and I’ve officially started dating a wonderful woman I first met in the online dating scene. We’ve been talking and catching up for almost 4 weeks now and we’ve just done the big status change on facebook. 🙂
Needless to say, I’m feeling slightly dazed! On top of the world, anxious, excited, exhausted, frustrated, happy… I think I’ve hit every emotional note and then some this week.
Dating as a multiple is complicated. My girlfriend knows of my situation and we’re doing a lot of talking. I’m learning a lot and my system is adjusting to the new circumstances. I’m working on foreseeing and avoiding at least the obvious possible problems (such as leaving the other person feeling rejected when some parts need time to themselves), and discovering that being a multiple in a relationship doesn’t all have to be trauma and downsides… in fact it can be fun, silly, enjoyable, slightly bizarre, and always interesting! There’s a lot of role swapping and different kinds of bonds being formed as different parts turn up to say hello.
So, that’s been my week. Off to The Knack tonight, hope your week is going well!
