Thank you for your post. I can hear how the system of the peace pipe has had a positive influence on your relationship. It's wonderful to hear how this process has transformed over the years and by the sounds of it really supported you both towards respectful communication.
Has this process been something that was introduced to you by someone or something you have established together?
I wonder if other community members have established their own practises for dealing with conflict, reactions, strong emotions etc within relationship?

Thanks for sharing your post.
I struggle to communicate openly with my husband. We don't argue a lot but when we do I tend to shut up and let it go just for the sake of not having a confrontation. I am very scared of confrontations. Scared of fights.
But what you do and your boundries are fantastic. I only wish we could just sit down with a cuppa and discuss things. We just don't and it scares me because i feel if we continue like this we will go separate ways - which i don't really want to do.
But there is so much fear and it's me.
