Wouldn’t it be nice if people could read your mind? That way, people will know what you’re going through, how you’re feeling, and what your needs are at every single moment. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. And as well-meaning as your partner, friends, and family are, they just don’t know what’s going on in that head of yours.
