Show them how you want to be treated….


“If you have to ask someone to change, to tell you they love you, to bring wine to dinner, to call you when they land, you can’t afford to be with them. It’s not worth the price, even though, just like the Tiffany catalog, no one tells you what the price is. You set it yourself, and if you’re lucky it’s reasonable. You have a sense of when you’re about to go bankrupt. Your own sense of self-worth takes the wheel and says, Enough of this shit. Stop making excuses. No one’s that busy at work. No one’s allergic to whipped cream. There are too cell phones in Sweden. But most people don’t get lucky. They get human. They get crushes. This means you irrationally mortgage what little logic you own to pay for this one thing. This relationship is an impulse buy, and you’ll figure out if it’s worth it later.”-

How did you get this number, Sloane Crosley

My take: Having to ask someone to give you what you need is tricky…I don’t think you should ever pretend to be happy about something if you are truly not because in the end, it will only make the situation worse and cause an explosion of frustration and resentment.   But I truly feel that two people  who want to be together, should give each other what they need, otherwise, what is the point of the union?  If you aren’t getting what you need, you have the right to speak up and give that person a chance to step up to the plate…and if they bow out then at least you can move on and find someone better suited for you.  When you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than what you settled for.-Maureen Dowd
