The purpose of a relationship is not to have someone who will complete you, it is to share your completeness with them. It is companionship, a deep sense of connection and love. When based on shared values and goals, it can be passionate, creative and stimulating. It can provide stability, security, laughter and can be the platform for personal growth.
Good, healthy and meaningful relationships provide us with the richest experiences we can ever have. A loving partner who shares everything with you is what brings joy to life.
A romantic relationship is an opportunity for you to evolve, learn something new, release something old and become a better version of ourselves.
When you realize that your partner is not “your” partner, that he or she owes you nothing and is not there to make you happy or satisfy you – for the first time you’ll experience freedom! < this is what we need to remember (your partner is not the main focal point, they are an additional prize in your life who enriches and enhances it)
Partners who persistently work on their joint expectations are more likely to have a happy and meaningful relationship. Teach yourself the art of understanding & feeling what both of you go through in the relationship.
The goal is a meaningful, loving relationship that meets both your expectations – instead of two partners with no goal in mind. This goal can only be achieved if you are willing to work for it and talk about it.
When you are ready for this challenge, your reward is a strong, long-lasting, loving and meaningful relationship.
Our partners are merely a mirroring reflection of our own fears, insecurities, lacks and limitations. To blame them for showing it to us and/or to expect a certain behavior from them makes no sense. Realize that you’re in this relationship to work on yourself and yourself alone.
Many believe it’s both partners’ responsibility to invest in relationship and as such – each is responsible for 50% of it, right? Wrong! You and you alone are responsible for your own happiness 100%
True romantic relationships are based on simple principles and if properly regarded will yield ever growing, long lasting and harmonious relationships for years to come:
1- We are in romantic relationships to master ourselves, to grow consciously and spiritually and to master inner fulfillment and wholeness.
2- Our partner is a mirroring reflection of us – to amplify and show us our lessons.
3- Start looking at your partner not as your lover but as your Guru/coach/tutor and you’ll experience the highest form of Love – Unconditional Love.
Unconditional love means, “I love you no matter what happens,” NOT “no matter what you do to me.”
It means UNDER ANY CONDITION life throws at us – I promise not to scream at you because I’m having a bad day. I promise not to blame you if we hit the skids. Not judging or punishing, but loving without conditions
Unconditional love is caring about the happiness of another person without any thought for what we might get for ourselves.
