Lately, you don’t dream. You have no visions. You just operate. With your eyes closed, you could predict every upcoming conversation, every question, every event, every moment. Now, you are coasting.
Being faithful means more than keeping your hands to yourself. It means more than only sleeping with one person, only kissing one person, only being physically involved with one person.
Every time someone leaves I always think I’ll handle it a little more gracefully.
You were an almost. The girl who was almost worth dating. The girl who almost made him want to settle down. The girl who was almost good enough.
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.
After an emotional affair, they don’t have to see each other in person. They don’t need to talk on the phone, text, or email to still feel madly in love.
