“If you need something from somebody always give that person a way to hand it to you.”
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
How simple those words and how easy to forget. I wonder how many times I have created unnecessary stress for myself (and others) because rather than asking for something, I expected people to read my mind or to instinctively know what I wanted. It has taken me quite awhile to get comfortable with using my voice to express my wants, desires, needs, and feelings. Sometimes giving a person a way to hand you what you want is as simple as letting them know what it is that you want.
