The most important thing to consider in a romantic relationship is how you feel with that person when no one is watching.
With genuine freedom there is great responsibility and great commitment.
You try to fix and change yourself because you reject parts of yourself. You feel that if you are no longer those things, you will have changed into something that is lovable. This is a contradiction in and of itself. You cannot reject yourself into something that you can love.
Most of us ACT a certain way in order to be loved. What we don’t realize is that by definition, this makes being loved impossible. It means people around us love the character we are playing, but not necessarily us.
The change you desire to take place will automatically begin occurring the minute that you become aware of the purpose behind your undesired thought, undesired behavior or undesired state of being.
If you have failed to take action towards a goal, chances are that you have not set a goal that is inspirational enough to part of yourself or to your whole self.
The definition of unsafety in a relationship is when someone cannot take your best interests as part of their own best interests.
I want to live in a world where what is real or genuine about someone is not seen as just cause for rejecting them. I want to live in a world where we can lay down our need to be right long enough to discuss our often completely opposing perspectives; so as to arrive at a greater perspective than either. I want to live in a world where it is safe to be authentic.
Negative emotion is always the red flag alerting you to the fact that there is something there to learn. It is always alerting you that you have come to the crossroads of personal expansion. But if you avoid the negative feeling, you also avoid the lesson and the expansion.
If we don’t dare to dream, we will never have a different life. We will never know what is truly possible.
