There are so many patterns and habits we get into in our relationships that keeps us from thriving in them. When we take responsibility in our relationships, when we take responsibility for our own lives, we must master asking and getting to live a fulfilled life.
This doesn't mean that everyone needs to give you what you want. It means that you refuse to live without, that you make no win-lose compromises.
We wind up asking people to date, marry, work with an impostor because the real us is behind a curtain, we've compromised ourselves right out of existence. In this conversation, there's ALWAYS room to grow, myself included.
We're meeting at Lillie's and there will be a new policy at Lillie's. This policy is entirely my my own making. I want our visit to be a win for an establishment who offers us a very rare opportunity to have our own private room and welcomes us graciously every month. Out of gratitude, let's all have dinner. Anyone coming to Lillie's for The Relationship Circle will please adhere to a $20 minimum food and drink order. I will announce this minimum at the beginning of our meetup to remind everyone.
This isn't meant as a slight to anyone who has come in the past who did it differently. I just want to create a win-win agreement with Lillie's that works for them as much as for us.
Thanks for understanding.
