S - SPEAK
In the dating realm it's imperative to communicate who you are and what you have to offer. Even the more, it's imperative to communicate what you will and will not accept. Without verbalizing your truths you are setting the path for the other party to dictate the direction you should go; you're simply going along to get along. Maybe you do as others do, smile and nod just to have someone to call "mine."
Ever hear the phrase, "conversation rules the nation?" Then why are you not speaking up for what you want and need? Here's why.
It's the fear of not knowing if you will be turned away because of your wants. Maybe it's knowing the person can't fulfill your needs, but you'd rather have them in your space instead of going at it solo, so mums the word.
Keeping yourself silent is not healthy. It's not putting you first. And if you are not putting your needs first, why would anyone else?
Speak up or forever hold your peace!
