I like this idea in particular when it comes to women, who are culturally trained to suppress their own needs in favor of serving others. I read a story about “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein getting a new ending this morning. Are you familiar with that children's book? A new author humorously changed the title to "The Tree that Knew How to Set Reasonable Boundaries." Hahahah! Coupledom and parenthood have their drawbacks, too...
