"no more trips to the hardware store for milk" how Teal putted it once.
Not anybody can meet your emotional needs, that doesnt mean that there is no one on earth that can and will.
when you for example wish that someone falls in love with you, you cannot just point with the finger on some random dude and say: you, yes you, meet my need and fall in love with me, now.
no,... but someone will probably fall in love with you one day and meet this need; we (everybody) just have to find those people who are naturally doing or being the things that meet our needs right?
you dont go to a very harsh person to get some nice words or to get a hug, thats not their field of expertice. for that you would rather go to a person who likes to give nice words and hugs, so to speak..
1. own your best interests, needs and values
2. check your "radar" for opportunities to get those met; dont expect just anybody to meet your needs, thats not possible and will not happen.
