Let's try something different. Challenging. Let's keep an open mind. Let's not jump to conclusions about each other. Let's not project our expectations. Let's listen, instead of simply hear. Let's be frank, but not unkind. Let's be in control, of ourselves and our relationship, but let us not be controll ing (there is a difference). Let's be courteous. Let's be confident, but not narcissistic. Let's be conservatively dressed, noticed for attention to detail, not for demanding attention. Let's be forgiving without being gullible, hard-working without being obsessed, respectful without being bashful, and humble without being insecure. And let's be ourselves.
That, in a nutshell, is what I want. What do you want?
