Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship. There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”.

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine. Both of us were filled with dreams that we were working to create together, along with supporting each other's individual dreams. But then there came that "crack", as Zara put it.

Many times people spend their entire lifetime in a never ending search for happiness, or what they want from life, never quite being able to find, or hold it. Sometimes lightly touching it for short fleeting moments, but never able to totally grasp it, and keep it for their own. Feverishly searching high, low, above and below, in every nook and cranny, always believing if they could just have, or accomplish this one thing, they would then be happy and content…only to discover that when they possess it, the happiness somehow once again, mysteriously eludes them. A heart with a hidden hole, that can never stay filled.

But all the while they are agitatedly searching all around them, all along it was following them everywhere that they went, in the one place they neglected to look, but was there all along.

For they have never come face to face with the mysteries that lay within, and the choice to just be.

Oh how very true this is. If only more could and would come to understand this.

I searched for years. Many years wasted in the stupidity of my youth.

But with age and maturity I thank God that I finally got it!!

Great post!!:-)))

Somehow I feel that time is moving too fast for me and yet, no one comes in my way. Well, there is still hope though, but soon really, I would stop searching and maybe be just satisfied knowing the fact that I'm happy whether or not I have a partner.
