My Needs Are…

My needs are legitimate.

I have the choice to not participate in meeting others needs if I have not yet met my own. Or even if I have.

My needs were not being met in my relationship.

I can meet my own needs for acceptance and love, and attention. [not sure how, but I think I can think of something.]

G’s alcoholic needs are self-serving

I feel caught…

I have needs. As I human being, I need to depend on someone. On multiple people. I have legitimate dependency needs. I have legitimate, undeniable, tangible needs. They are here and they are here to stay.

Can I look at them?
