We have to recognise that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.
I find the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.
When what you hear and what you see don't match, trust your eyes.
When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.
When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.
Trust is the glue of life. It's the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It's the foundational principle that holds all relationships.
Stephen R. Covey
Most don't deserve your tears... and the ones that do will never make you cry.
T. Rafael Cimino
People are islands,' she said. 'They don't really touch. However close they are, they're really quite separate. Even if they've been married for fifty years.
Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.
People die, I think, but your relationship with them doesn't. It continues and is ever-changing.
Being single doesn't mean you're weak, it means that you're strong enough to wait for the right person.
I mean, if the relationship can't survive the long term, why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?
Relationships dont always make sense. Especially from the outside
What we wait around a lifetime for with one person, we can find in a moment with someone else.
A beautiful thing happens when we start paying attention to each other. It is by participating more in your relationship that you breathe life into it.
We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everyhwere.
Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved.
William Paul Young
This is what our love is––a sacred pattern of unbroken unity sewn flawlessly invisible inside all other images, thoughts, smells, and sounds.
The words ‘I Love You’ kill, and resurrect millions, in less than a second.
We know from daily life that we exist for other people first of all, for whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.
To respect the dignity of a relationship also implies accepting the end when it comes. Except in my mind, except in my dreams, where the aftertaste of her still lingers.
Over time, any deception destroys intimacy, and without intimacy couples cannot have true and lasting love.
Bonnie Eaker Weil
Be sure it's your real self you're showing. Because it is your real self that needs to be loved.
Daphne Rose Kingma
That night when you kissed me, I left a poem in your mouth, and you can hear some of the lines every time you breathe out.
The desire to love someone always exceeds the desire to be loved by someone & that's exactly why we end up loving the person who doesn't deserve that LOVE.
Right now we are here, and nothing can mar our perfection, or steal the joy of this perfect moment.
I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.
The foundation of adult trust is not "You will never hurt me." It is "I trust myself with whatever you do."
You think being dead inside is bad until someone brings you back to life and stabs you in the chest without the intention of killing you.
