I once appealed (whined) to someone, “I need you to love me. I can’t live without your love.”
“Then you have a problem,” he answered without hesitation.
Although his response felt abrupt and insensitive, he was so right.
Whether male or female,
are relationship essentials.
Ironically, it is only when we have these that we can truly have a strong love for someone else.
Without them…risk your mental health, succumb to jealousy, become co-dependent, be subject to abject loneliness, or have sporadic fits of fear or rejection.
