if you do nothing else in a relationship, fight for yourself.
especially women. we are born & raised to nurture/give. a man will always fight for his self-interest. you need to do the same.
i’m not saying be a cutthroat, evil bitch. i’m just saying that just like he is in the relationship, you are too. you matter.
what you want/don’t want/need/think/say/feel matters. act like it.
this also applies in being submissive. your wants/needs should be met through the results of his leadership.
