The more confident in yourself you are, the more generous you'll be with close partners. The more insecure you are, the more likely you are to hold them to a standard and to be picky about the details of what's happened in the past. Notice that you are the variable. Your point of view shifts how you perceive, and therefore treat, the people you care about. Therefore, focus on your self-assurance above all else. You may be feeling more emotional than usual; more oriented on your needs rather than your desires; more sensitive to the views of others. You can experience these feelings with no corresponding need to defend yourself or to assert yourself. You're not usually the one who needs the reminder to be more objective and detached from your feelings; that's your specialty. Today I'm here to remind you to take a deep breath and a step back, and remember that people care about you—and that you can be confident of that fact.
