I listened to a talk given by a relationship therapist and she had mentioned the concept of wanting others to want something. I’ve tried to arrange a google search to find more info on that specific concept but haven’t come up with anything accurate. I thought the issue might be that I’m not accurately referring to the concept so I thought I’d ask if there is a term or a name I could use to look further into the topic. Note that I don’t actually know if the concept even has a term or name associated with it. It is possible the answer is that what I’m looking for just doesn’t exist.
