    Ask for what you need.

    I know it’s not easy.

    But, please, ask for what you need.

    For how long are you going to carry this load?

    Yes, a part of you wants you to stay quiet and smile.

    That part wants to make sure you are protected, safe and loved.

    I hear that part. I acknowledge it. I appreciate it.

    But how about, learning to ask for what you need?

    Slowly, hesitantly, awkwardly.

    Until that part of you realises that it’s safe and rewarding to ask for what you need.

    Others may not like it.

    They may try to make you feel guilty.

    They may make you look like a bad person.

    But, you will see that it’s better like that.

    You will feel your worth.

    They will appreciate you more.

    Learn to ask for what you need—appreciating that it’s going to be uncomfortable at the start.

    And if you can’t do it for yourself, do it for me.

    Yes! This is how I’m going to trick you.

    Ask for what you need and do it for me.

    And remember that when you ask for what you need, you inspire me to ask for what I need.

    And the world becomes more beautiful.

    Do it for you, do it for me, do it for us.

    Loving you, Angelos
