It's time for you and your partner to muster your strength and dive into trying out these new experiences that you're dying to have. You can't deny the fact that you feel quite liberated now that you have been honest with one another.
However, now you're faced with an unexpected dilemma: while you feel closer to this person, you feel overwhelmed by the feelings that these new experiences could provoke.
This new scenario that you're considering could get a bit out of hand and make you feel insecure, even more so, keeping in mind how much you like to control situations. Don't worry, trust this person.
In the end, if you were brave enough to share all of this with your partner, this is because your relationship has a strong base that will help you to overcome any new situation.
Sometimes the best way to take control of a situation is by letting it take its course. With that being said, you should relax a little and let your colleagues work freely since too much authority on your part could make them feel hostile towards you.
This week you should take the time to reflect on your attitude at work, it seems like it hasn't been the best lately. At first, everything might look fine, but there are a lot of people that aren't very happy with you.
Take a vote of no confidence: you're capable of carrying out any function, so feel free to take on responsibilities and show that you're just like any other team member without butting your head in others' work.
Over the past two days, you've had time to think clearly and plan out a proper diet for your current circumstance. The time has come to behave and mind the advice of friends and family members that are there to help you.
Ignoring or evading these recommendations that you've been receiving won't help you in the least, so, get serious for once and take control of this problem as soon as possible. Otherwise, things could get worse.
