It's amazing, once you get into processing and talking, what kinds of things come up and what questions become important.

Questions that were brought up today are:

  • What do I want from my partner?
  • What do I want to give (do for) my partner?
  • What do I need from my partner?
  • What can I give (do for) my partner?

I came to understand that there's quite a difference between wants and needs, as well as between what you want to give and what you can give.

I've never really done this exercise before, although I've had the question "what do you want?" thrown at me a number of times. And perhaps that question was just too general for me, mabe I needed to answer somewhat more detailed questions, like the above? And maybe I just wasn't ready to answer before now... And boy, do I feel ready to go for it!

The only thing I need to be careful with is not to give answers that are just designed to be pleasing and which will only end up compromising me. I need to be careful that I give true answers, what I really need, what I really want, what I really want to give and what I really see that I can give.

I've never before felt so excited by processing, talking and personal growth.
