Expressing your needs

Hello, guys. As an autistic person, I found out that expressing your needs can be a bit painful when you feel insecure about the person listening to them, whether they're willing to be of help.

Who are you the most comfortable with to talk about your needs?

How do you express your needs?

What do you need today?

This week has been heavy. I feel like we all could use some self care. So what do you need today? You can pick as many as you want or add your own. I am going with hugs, yummy food and a basket of kittens. Maybe some Céline Dion music to chill by. And...I'm sending virtual hugs to each and every one of you today. That's a lot of hugs!!!

Who is it easy to talk about your needs with? #52SmallThings

Talking about your needs may not exactly be the “easiest” conversation but it can be easier to talk about with certain people. Maybe you have a sibling or close friend you trust. Or maybe that person is your partner if you’re in a relationship. Share with us who you trust to have these conversations with.

Bonus: If you’re able to, share who you struggle opening up to about your needs and what you’d like to do to change that.

Name at least one thing you need to feel good. #52SmallThings

Maybe you need a good night of rest. Or maybe you need a “screen break” for an hour or so every now and then to feel good. What’s one thing you need to feel good physically, mentally and/or emotionally? (Bonus points if you name at least one thing for each!)

Myths about Relationship in Isolation

- If someone cares about you, they will want to spend all of their time with you.

- If you love each other, your partner should be able to know all of your needs during isolation.

- If you're the perfect match, you will not argue with your partner.

- If you really love each other, you will not have to negotiate or adjust your expectations during this pandemic.

Maslow’s Heiarchy of Needs - Self Love

How much are we sacrificing our needs to care for others first? We need to make sure we give ourselves the attention we spoil others with to be the best version of ourselves. I’m still at the very bottom right now unfortunately. #Selflove #Awareness #needs #neglect

Sometimes you’ll fight with someone because you are trying to get something from them that you can only give yourself.
