• A different approach

    I’ll just share with you the good things that happen to me and keep our communications positive. Lmk what you think.

    Let’s give it a whirl.

    So today at work, I took a risk and, without permission, took the initiative to handle a nagging situation that has frustrated my office for months. I was self-validated with my unilateral effort because I knew I was in the right and it was time for someone to take care of this.

    But even though I was pleased with myself, that good feeling would have been short-lived if my boss had criticized me for my assertiveness or aggressiveness in handling the situation. Instead, he praised me and told me I did a good job. My good feeling got even better.

    It’s kinda the same with you and me, ya know. I feel good loving you, I feel validated in my feelings for you. But that is nothing compared to what I would feel like if you validated those feelings and reciprocated them back to me. It’s good, but incomplete otherwise. Does that make sense?
