Are Lessons In Love
Lessons Within Lessons and
Lessons of Life
Relationships are teachable moments with multiple layers and many lessons, especially in relation to other people! Just think about what you learn and what you share and what you gain in experiences from those relationships. Think about the relationship you have with yourself too. Pretty Amazing, right!
I love that I can be myself in certain relationships! I do have a voice and I can express myself. I feel that I can be open and free with who I am within that relationship. I can show and share myself and my many layers!
It is a process though and it takes patience and commitment! I have to create that connection. I have to develop that communication and that interaction. I have to build on that relationship!
I need to trust in myself in order to open my heart and let another person into my inner circle! I can be more open and accepting of what I want to share about myself with another person when there is that trust too. Then there is the possibility and the opportunity to nurture, flourish and grow as a person!
I enjoy when growth is a natural process between two people! That ability to build each other up instead of break each other down as individuals. Love versus Fear. Happiness versus Jealously. A desire to benefit and gain as well as experience and grow from and with each other!
I enjoy knowing where the boundaries are in order to give each other the personal space that we both need and want in a relationship! The giving and receiving. The listening and supporting. The respect, esteem and love for each other!
The not trying to change that person and letting them be who they are! The being there for each other when figuring out who we are, where our place is, what we want to do, and how to just live life in general!
Walking Side By Side
I love being an individual and having independence within a relationship! I certainly know it makes me a better partner and friend to myself and other people. I need my own interests, passions and dreams. I need to take time for myself and take care of my needs as well as my whole being!
Then I am not relying completely on another person to do that for me because I can do that for myself! I am nurturing and nourishing myself. I am feeding and fueling myself. Then I can spend time and share with another person and be there for them!
Some relationships are brief while others may last a lifetime! There will be lows and highs. There will be ups and downs. I think the greatest gifts to take out of any relationship is those lessons in growth and gaining life experiences!

You never know who you may meet as well as impact or transform by communicating, interacting and connecting with each other!

Definitely to foster relationships there needs to be dedication and commitment. I so agree with your point about accepting the person and not trying to change them.

I’ve always believed that people come into your life for a certain reason. Sometimes they stay, sometimes they go. But their purpose always stays.
