I want that same thing — reciprocation

Keywords: blacklove , couples , love , lovelanguage , reciprocation

While reciprocating in your relationship isn’t hard, it can be easy to overlook because one person may be heavy on the giving end while others are just used to receiving. Sometimes the giver may not know that they are the primary source of what they give out until lack is realized, and you now begin to see what is needed from your partner.

That was my idea of independence: earning my own money so I don’t have to ask anyone for anything

Keywords: journal

But… I was wrong. I wasn’t independent. I was relying on the job, the company I was working for. Providing them my time, my energy, all that in order to get money and be the unrestrained woman I thought I was. Which is ridiculous. I rely on others to get in my purse what I trade with my sweat, my life resources.
