There is so much truth to this. The first part is something XH and I used to say - I'll always put you first and you'll always put me first, and we'll never have a problem. Except humanity creeps in with real life, and it doesn't work out that way.

Love this.

I like that.

Wish I could subscribe to it and I'm trying to but it's a hard change to make.

Thanks for posting that, Ama. I printed it out for one of my students who is having trouble with her asshole boyfriend and is a budding codependent.
