I Hate Asking...

I do.  I always have.  I wish those close to me would just know.  If anyone ever paid close enough attention I think they might know but no one seems to pay me that brand of attention.  I hate spelling them out and even more so I hate dancing around the subject.  It makes me feel so damn selfish.  I'd rather just go without. 

By the way the needs am speaking about are needs I can not meet for myself, they require another's participation.  And I am not taking about sex...I am talking about feelings and emotions, wants and wishes.

How do you make your needs known?

Thanks for commenting, Dee. You are so right, avoiding conflict is a huge reason for keeping silent.<br />

I too am eager to what others have to say and how they overcome this.

I so understand this, ND... I'm the same way. I think I'm just learning to speak my truth. Not sure about you, but avoiding conflict is a big issue for me. So I really don't have too much wise advice, rather I'm lending an understanding ear and eager to hear what others have to say about this.
