I prefer to say in many words that which can better be said in few.
Anyhoo, a LOT of us are unhelpfully and unnecessarily slow to express our needs, wants, hopes, desires. Often this is becuase
when we were growing up (and becoming ourselves) these were not given a proper awareness and respect by our care-givers. Also, often the direct asking/saying of these was often not "modelled" for us well by same 'care'-providers.
It's never too late to begin lovingly, kindly, re-parenting our little selves.
