1. Remember that I'm more fragile than I declare myself to be. So if I ask for an affirmation, just give it to me. I only ask if I really need to hear one.
2. I'm also much stronger than most people realise. So whatever you need to say, just say it directly. It might break me, but I'll survive.
3. My yes is yes and my no is no. If I say yes, please accept that I have thought it out and made my mind up for myself.
4. I don't give in to pressure. I give in to the people I love, because giving in makes me happy. Let me do it.
