How often do we complain, blame and criticize when it would be so much easier to just ask for what we want? Why is it so difficult to be direct rather than beating around the bush or expecting that people should know what we want? We often wait, focusing on what we don’t have, and suffering in silence while building anger and resentment.
What would it be like to simply ask for what we want? That would require us taking responsibility to get our own needs met, and to be open to the possibility that if we ask, we may not get what we want. Which is worse, feeling the disappointment or rejection of asking and not getting, or not asking in the first place?
No one person can provide all of our needs. We may have to rely on friends or other support to help us. If we don’t ask for what we want and seek ways of attaining what is important to us, we most likely will not get it.
