Sometimes events that are not discussed can fester and cause resentment between a couple. This "check in" keeps the pressure from building in the emotional soda bottle from things that have remained unresolved. This kind of communication is essential in the success of a marriage and a D/s relationship. Revisiting feelings that have occurred during the day need to be resolved before they become compiled with other feelings. This can cause a masking of the true problem or prevent either one from getting to the heart of the true feelings about any one situation. Most importantly, it allows me to know and better serve my Mistress.
