I have posted before that my H is not good about follow through and keeping his word. My IC said that I need to let him know it's about gaining my trust. So Monday and Tuesday he missed his noontime calls to me, which are his idea. I called him yesterday afternoon and he apologized and had several excuses.
Well, I thought about it, then wrote him an email saying, rather gently, that I didn't accept his excuses and that his word should mean something.
I waited nervously for a reply, since defensiveness is his fallback position. Instead he wrote back that I was 100% right, that his word to me should mean something and that he was on it.
Today he has called twice and texted twice.
I know it's just a beginning, but it's still a big difference.
