This difficulty plagued her for as long as she could remember. She observed others who seemed so easily able to say, “No” when they meant, “No.” Or even to speak up and say, “Yes” to wanting or desiring something in her life—acknowledging her favorite place to eat, asking for time alone, or trying something new.

Have you ever gone to the grocery store hungry? We are all guilty of doing this occasionally. And what happens? You don’t make good decisions. You buy junk food, you buy too much, and you buy things that will solve your problem of hunger the fastest, like sugary, carb-laden foods. And if you snack on those chips on the way home from the store and indulge in some ice cream upon walking in the door to your home, you won’t feel good for long.

Dating is the same. When ...
