8:45 Topic: Shifting time commitments as priorities change
A listener calls in to ask a question: since it turns out her partner isn’t available to be a live-in partner and she wants a live-in partner, is it OK/ethical to reduce the time she spends with him in order to make room for a potential live-in partner?
Things to consider:
- It’s OK to want what you want
- You get to decide what your priorities and boundaries are
- Address the issue with all involved if/when it becomes reality, not before (don’t borrow trouble)
- Ask for what you want and be prepared to hear yes, no or a counter offer
