to our family and I know it’s…p by himself and I missed the garbage pick-up twice because he always takes on that responsibility. It helped me to see all the things he does for us and the energy he brings to our family and I know it’s the same for him when I’m away as well.
This makes total sense, yet I haven't seen anyone before you pointing it out. When we talk about the benefits of alone time, we mostly look at what it gives and teaches the person who benefits from that gift. But looking at what it teaches the partner who remains to take up our place, that's a refreshing insight! :)
