Does He/She Strive to Place My Desires and Needs First?
I understand the importance of giving and receiving. But if the person you're with has the attitude of, "My desires are above yours," they're not ready for a relationship. They still have some growing up to do. I've met plenty of people who believe the world revolves around them, rather than embracing the simple truth that we are all part of a universe. We are a part of the human community within a universe. That universe nor its members are here to grant us our dreams and wishes. Until we realize this, we will live very selfishly and never understand what it will take to nurture and grow healthy relationships. Clear warning signs: Temper tantrums, outbursts of anger, control issues and their believing you should read their minds to know their wants and desires without having to communicate them to you.
