Here are a few things that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for in a relationship.
Time is life’s most sought-after commodity. It’s the one thing that money just can’t buy. It’s the only thing in the world that we wish we had more of but we just can’t get. That’s why time is very valuable in relationships. When you offer your time to your partner, then you are letting your partner know just how important the relationship means to you. Time is something that once shared, one could never get back. Time is only something that you would reserve for those who mean the most to you.
Lastly, commitment. It’s okay for you to demand commitment from your partner at all times. Nothing good in life is ever given. Everything worth having must always be fought for. If you want this love to succeed, then the both of you need to commit to it at all times.
Relationships are all about companionship. The thing that separates a romantic companionship from a casual one is the level and consistency of the attention that one is giving. As a couple in love, you have to be able to offer each other as much attention as is needed. You have to create safe spaces for one another to communicate and to express one’s emotions. You have to even serve as each other’s punching bags whenever necessary. Whenever your partner wants to express something, you always have to be willing to lend your ear.
