Not being accessible to everyone all the time: “Everyone doesn’t need access to you. Some people are draining and they don’t even know it. You’re allowed to say no, you’re allowed to not answer calls, you’re allowed to break plans, and if you need to save yourself, do it.” — Sylvester McNutt III, Lust for Life
Having needs: “You think you’re being a low-maintenance partner but you’re actually just afraid your partners won’t show up to your needs, so you pretend to not have any. You should impact a space you’re in. It’s okay to require things from the people in your life. You’re not ‘too much.’” - Coach Carla, @mooretalkja on Twitter
