wants/needs/etc

what i want from our relationship:

(or, the beginning of understanding my needs)

  • compassion, or that we support each other and strive to understand other perspectives
  • trust (both from you and from me), or that we are open and honest with one another
  • challenge, or that we are helping and encouraging each other to be our best selves

what i get from our relationship: love, smiles, deep belly laughs, comfort, frustration, growth, confidence, and so many other lovely things… but sometimes just verbalizing what i need reminds me of all of this.

Oh girlfriend.
