As a woman, I think we do tend to be needy when we shouldn’t be. I know a lot of women who need their husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend to be the center of their lives and the focal point of their happiness. We have decided what we’re entitled to, then don’t ask for it and complain when others don’t give it to us. While we should feel free to ask for things we really need, like love and patience, we should not assume that we are entitled to those things and continue to complain when we don’t get them. We “need” very little outside of ourselves to be happy.
