Getting Needs Met

The worst part about this? Both parties lose.

We think we are saving our loved ones from what we consider to be the burden of our needs. The truth is that in our efforts to avoid disappointment, we are instead building resentments; we perpetually predict being disappointed without ever offering our partner the opportunity to prove us wrong. In this instance, we also deny them a chance to prove us right.

If you do not speak your needs, they can never be met. You may avoid some disappointment, but you will also rob yourself of the comfort & safety available in fulfilling and reciprocal relationships.
