How To Feel More Comfortable Asking For What You Need In A Relationship

Let’s get together and discuss how to Feel Good about asking for what you want in a relationship. Jeff & Rose of IntimateCoaching.Com will be presenting this month’s discussion group. Truthfully, asking for what you need in a relationship can be really effing difficult. Even if you feel totally at ease with your partner, there’s such a stigma around coming across as “needy” (especially for women) that it can make you anxious to voice any concerns you have or dissatisfaction you feel in your relationship.
Knowing how to communicate what you need and want from your partner is a crucial component of a healthy relationship, but before you can do that, you need to get in touch with what your needs are in the first place — which isn’t all that easy, either.
It takes a lot of courage to sit down with your partner and have an open, honest discussion about something within your relationship that you feel needs to change, whether that’s the division of chores or how often you have sex. Having the conversation in the first place is a sign that you love and care about your partner.
Asking for what you need requires you to be vulnerable, as well as risk hurting your partner’s feelings or getting yours hurt. It requires feeling safe in your relationship, and having trust that your partner will hear and receive you without judgement. This can be especially challenging for younger people, who have had less experience navigating the sometimes murky waters of relationships, and are still in the process of discovering a strong sense of self.
Being able to ask for what you want in bed and in your relationship both stems from and enlarges a sense of empowerment and self-worth. To remain in a relationship that does not consistently meet your needs is, quite frankly, damaging to your sense of self-worth and value.
So come to our monthly discussion group and we will share with each other our experiences, tips and methods to asking for what you want in a relationship. If you are currently single this is still a great topic. You will find many of the same issues apply to dating also.
