Making Requests

When it comes to relationships, particularly romantic relationships, I understand that Brooke recommends we drop the manual and accept our partner for who they are.

She also says, that doesn’t mean we can’t make requests as long as our emotional well-being isn’t tied in to the response to that request.

I would like some guidance on how to make requests, how to word them in an assertive manner but also let my partner know that my emotional well-being isn’t going to be tied in to his response.
