Another way of saying this is you need to make sure someone else likes, wants and needs you before you are able to like, want and need yourself. Your next step is to look within yourself and ask yourself why this is true.
We are getting closer to finding the real fear in you. I received the private message you sent the other day. I replied. I'm not used to sending private messages on this forum, so I hope my reply reached you. If not, let me know and I'll try again.
