I don’t blame it entirely on him or me but I blame it on my age. I felt like my life was ruined.
Trying to change someone is deadly to an intimate relationship.
I’ve seen countless Facebook statuses from my friends that usually say something along the lines of, “I just finished my show! Lemme hear your Netflix recommendations!” So, here they are….
I once read somewhere that loving someone is giving them a gun and trusting they won’t pull the trigger. But you did, didn’t you? Was it on purpose? I know that my shot wasn’t, but maybe you didn’t even feel that graze.
After all, it takes two to tango. If you don’t play along, then there is no game.
Don’t let your loneliness ruin you. Don’t let someone who left you, have all the power. And don’t let this feeling take control on you. It’s just a feeling. Just a moment. Just a second
Since we care about them, we try to help minimize their feelings because we know that they are difficult, but sympathizing can be damaging despite positive intentions. Empathy is the willingness to feel with your partner. To understand their inner world.
Never underestimate the power of intentional time with your partner.
Long-lasting love requires courage. The courage to be vulnerable and to listen non-defensively, even in the heat of conflict. Especially when we are hurt and angry.
We build stronger connections with the people around us when we speak in words that arouse positive emotions.
