"Sometimes what you need isn't what you get,
it's what you already have."


Being stuck in a people-pleasing routine is what Bayla Barclay knows best. She's got every aspect of her strained relationship down to a science. She'll wear herself away to nothing without a second thought for whoever needs it. It's what she's best at.

But maybe what you're best at isn't always what's best for you. Maybe what you need isn't what you get; it's what you already have.

That's the difference between getting and needing.
