You and I are on a wavelength here! Yep music lesson is a safe place it's non-threatening for him.
I did say I'd bring us both a take away coffee but he texted back not to worry about him!!!! 😕 There went that idea. I might just turn up with two coffees and tell him he can just leave it if he doesn't want it.??
I've thought of outside too but we'd be where we could be seen by other staff. 😕😕
We have a lot of fun together and a lot of common interests.
I have a friend in the city who's been giving me some advice as he thinks G and I have so much in common we could have a lovely friendship. He's emailed me today that we both would have been adjusting to the new space yesterday and to just keep going slowly and be patient... I'm getting old waiting for this guy!
What do you think of me just turning up with a couple of coffees? My idea was as you say, to ease him into being more comfortable and relaxed with me..
I understand the anxiety he suffers. It's debilitating. I'm thrilled that I got him.to trust me as much as he has. I'm very mindful of being careful not to damage the trust.
Thank you for your thoughts they're helpful and confirm your thinking is like mine.
We do swap DVDs and book suggestions. That was quite a breakthrough!
I think being an outsider myself I have really felt for this man. He's so shy and alone and misjudged. People are cruel.
His music buddy has had a couple of quiet chats to me about how kind G is. I've noticed this friend seems to be the only one who supports G.
Guess I'll just keep going slow!
Any thoughts about the coffees?
Thanks for your thoughts. 🎶🥀
