Your Love Relationships
I believe your love relationships, more than anything else, have the power to directly define the extraordinary you can achieve in your life. These partnerships can range from fantastic to mediocre to poor, and go straight to the heart of your life experience. They affect our daily happiness and, if they are poor, they fuel negativity, uncertainly, add tremendous stress, and result in painful, long-lasting heartbreak.
If they are good, they have the power to create magic.
CREATE - ACT - ACCEPT
In this area, we strive to define...
Love....as the mind and body connection.
Relationships…as the standards and parameters you and your partner agree on.
A partner...as your teammate and equal in a variety of areas of your life.
The recipe of success...as a balance of love, freedom, aloneness, and endings.
Love...a powerful emotion that benefits us in a big way. It is one of the most profound emotions imaginable and can result in countless positive enhancements to your life: a trusted confidante, excitement, stability, a reason to compromise, the dance of give and take, the unconditional desire to do something for another person, safety, a sense of belonging, and passion.
Without that feeling of love, some of us feel lonely, scared, selfish, and, at times, abandoned.
“Forget relationships and learn to relate.
Once you are in a relationship you start taking each
other for granted - that’s what destroys all love affairs.
The woman thinks she knows the man, the man
thinks he knows the woman.
Nobody knows either!
It is impossible to know the other, the other remains
They are processes, they are not things.
The woman you knew yesterday is not there today.
The man you slept with last night, look at his face
in the morning.
He is no more the same person.
The furniture in the room is the same, but the man
and the woman, they are no more the same.
Explore again, start again.
That’s what I mean about relating”
“I don’t think anyone is ever ready,
But when someone makes
You feel alive again
It’s kind of worth the risk.”
