Sometimes we put our expectations and ideals on other people without considering the other persons own wants and needs. We feel empowered when other people meet our expectations and ideals.
This is fine when things go our way. However, it is important to be able to accept that the other person is entitled to their own expectations and ideals too.
Sometimes they won’t align with yours which may lead to them saying no instead of yes. This can result in a form of tantrum behaviour.
The thing is though, even though you want what you want, it’s not healthy to want it at the expense of the other person.
It’s not healthy to want another person to be miserable, inconvenienced or go against their own needs just so you can have your way. At the same time, there is nothing wrong with asking for what you want.
You just have to keep in mind that you might not get that from the person you’re asking it of. But I believe that it is so important to give people the space to be themselves instead of trying to force them to follow your expectations and ideals.
And sometimes the best thing you can do is stop putting your stuff on other people and meet your own needs.
