A good relationship is about navigating the numerous differences between you – over politics, food, money, how to raise children.It’s those differences that make life more interesting, as our lover opens up a whole new way of seeing or understanding the world.
You may become involved in relationships that are codependent and ineffectual for both partners. I AM COMFORTABLE LOOKING IN THE MIRROR, SAYING, “I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU.” I NOW DESERVE LOVE, ROMANCE, AND JOY-AND ALL THE GOOD THAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER ME. Our preferred way of experiencing love is often the way we feel most comfortable demonstrating it back.
You can never create love in your life by talking or thinking about being lonely. Nor can you heal a relationship in your life by talking or thinking about how awful it is. You want to turn your thoughts away from the problem and create new thoughts that will produce a solution. I suggest that you work on loving yourself nonstop.
Arguing for your limitations is just resistance, and resistance is simply a delay tactic. Demonstrate the growing love you have for yourself.
Unfortunately, hunting for love doesn’t always attract the right partner because our reasons for wanting love may be unclear. I COME FROM THE LOVING SPACE OF MY HEART, AND I KNOW THAT LOVE OPENS ALL DOORS. There’s no one way to experience love, for we all experience love in different ways.
We think, Oh, if I only had someone who loved me, my life would be so much better. There’s a big difference between the need for love, and being needy for love. For some of us to really experience love, we need to feel love, through being hugged and touched.
