Not true.. but how we communicate it matters a great deal.

Do we criticize our partners and friends for not meeting our needs? Or do we show them how to meet them?

Do we expect them to just “get it”? Or do we help them to understand why it’s important to us?

Do we allow them to cater to our needs only? Or do we reciprocate?

The valuable people in our lives want us to get what we need.. and if they are valuable to us, we want that for them too.
