Topic: What I’ve Learned
What I’ve learned from doing Poly Weekly for 200 episodes:

  • I worry too much about being “really” poly instead of just being me and happy
  • Labels can annoy and frustrate
  • I am defensive about being secondary because I’ve never been openly welcomed into an existing relationship–something I hope to experience one day
  • how to better deal with introverts
  • how to be courageous in arguments
  • how to be courageous with metamours

What I still need to learn:

  • how to be less intense with metamours
  • how to open up and love again
  • how to balance personal life with activism
