Having Needs is Being Human
When someone calls us “Too Needy” it’s often because they don’t want to meet our needs, not that there’s anything problematic about them in the first place.
The trick is finding the right people who are willing to negotiate, compromise and reciprocate our needs in ways that help us all grow.
We ALL have legitimate human needs.
When someone calls us needy, it's often because they don't want to meet them.
When people have competing needs judging them is a way of coping.
Instead of acknowledging all disparate needs as legitimate we can react by devaluing others needs.
Honoring our needs means asserting them, making requests, and reciprocating with the right people.
Finding the right balance with giving & receiving helps relationships grow.
