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.

There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”. When you spend all of your time trying to please another person, at your own expense; they will see you as weak, possessive and clingy.[...]

Have You Seen My Rose Colored Glasses?"

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.

Quotes To Live By

The desires for the basic necessities of life can be satisfied, whereas the selfish desires of the ego can never be allayed. These do not spring from the chemistry of the body but are purely mental constructions—to be more and more, to have more and more: money, possessions, power, prestige, love; to outstrip and outshine all others; to be supreme. It is an impossible dream which, if realized, would not bring in its train either peace or happiness. The greedy, the jealous, the envious can never be satisfied because their dissatisfaction and unhappiness do not spring from any real deprivation of the essentials of life, but from the defects and distortions within their character.

What you cannot confront robs you of power. The fears you cannot face become more real to you and rob you of love.
~Layne and Paul Cutright, Secrets and Strategies For Successful Relationships~

“Get in touch with your deepest emotions and know your true self, love your essence and then your soulmate will be with you..."

“All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” -
~T. E. Lawrence~

I sometimes find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind... At these times... I use the Pensieve. One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one's mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one's leisure.
-- Albus Dumbledore~

“The price of a memory, is the sorrow it brings”
~Author Unknown~

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' " ~Eleanor Roosevelt~

Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes... your destiny.
~Unknown Author~

“We all want a better life for ourselves, yet large chunks of our time are spent simply preventing ourselves from losing what we already have.”

Life ends when you stop dreaming, hope ends when you stop believing and love ends when you stop caring. So dream hope and love...Makes Life Beautiful

First time I saw you I was scared to touch you. First time I touched you I was scared to kiss you. First time I kissed you I was scared to love you. But now that I love you I’m scared to lose you!

“A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.”
~Robert Hall~

Experience is what we get right after we need it.

"The best argument I know for an immortal life is the existence of a man who deserves one." ~William James~

"It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome."
~William James~

"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices."
~William James~

Forgiveness is the scent that a violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

The sum total of our conscious and unconscious choices puts us where we are at any given moment.
~Tad and Adriana James~

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

If you are waiting for anything in order to live and love without holding back, you suffer. Every moment is the most important moment of your life.
~David Deida~

Every moment is new and brilliantly unique because it’s never happened before. EVER.
~Marie Forleo~
