I am a recovering user of people and control freak (same affliction), so when wife, Carole, needs to travel away from home for an extended time, it's tough. But it gives me another opportunity to live out my commitment to invest in her health and happiness and also to reflect for better understanding on 1) the measure of her inborn temperament needs for my involvement in her life with respect to information, decision-making, and affection, and also, more importantly, 2) the measure to which her confidence level has grown that I support those needs.
