So what’s better? To be a priority or an option?

As a priority you enjoy respect and consideration, but you also require giving something of yourself in order to retain that admirable position. Stalkers and losers aside, usually you have to earn it. (Stupid ass Kant is popping up everywhere now!)

On the other hand, the benefits of being an option are great as well. As an option there is no obligation to fill any request and no expectation of having them filled yourself. So therefore the option can be very liberating provided the mindset is one where by you enjoy these circumstances.

Does one come with a certain amount of indignity? While the other with too much responsibility? If two people meet both expressing opposite desires, then of course trouble ensues. But if there is a marriage of the both within an individual then things are fine, provided their partner(s) has a similar mentality. One can be a priority while retaining flexibility, and can remain as an option and still be respected. I, of course, prefer the option-both to have and to be.

a great book for you my friend, is The Last American Man, instead of reviewing trashy love novels why don't you review this, I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Can you relate to the character? By elizabeth gilbert
