Home alone

Another common love knot ….

If you tell me what you want,

I feel controlled or obligated to do what you want.

When I feel controlled,

I feel weak and inadequate.


I cannot give you what you ask for

without feeling resentful.


If you tell me your feelings,

I must do what you want.

That would interfere with doing what I want (think, feel, am doing).


So I don’t want to hear or know your feelings
