Six Words to End a Disagreement

I want you to have it.
Wouldn't you love to hear these words when you say what you want? So would your life partner.

Instead we say other, less wonderful things:
We don't have the money.
I can't spare the time.
You wouldn't really like it.
Too bad. You can't have it.
Dream on!

But wouldn't it feel great to be able to say it? To feel confident it is within our reach to offer whatever our mate wants without all the negatives, all the fears that rush into our thoughts when we are asked?

This is why every couple needs to learn to find Third Alternatives to what look like either-or choices.
