  • Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value
    myself.

  • Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.

  • Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy,
    I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

  • Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

    After much internal debate I chose BY as well. Then I decided that wasn't quite right, tried again, and ended up BX.
