TODAY'S THEME IS RELATIONSHIPS

"Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take" -Anthony Robbins

"Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don’t over-analyse your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness" -Leo F. Buscaglia

"Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow" -Swedish Proverb

"A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself — to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart" -Leo F. Buscaglia

"Address the issue and not the personality"(For instance, if you partner breaks a plate,caution him/her for doing that but don't use words like, "you this person, you are used to things like this, you are clumsy, useless etc)- Myself

In this part of the world, we hear most words in echoes & simply act what we hear; they said "LOVE", we heard "off!..off!!..off!!!", they said "FAITH", we heard "fake!..fake!!..fake!!!", they said "PATIENCE", we heard "preference!..preference!!..preference!!!", "INTEGRITY", we heard "gity!..grity!!..grity!!! etc.
This is how we lost the meaning of these words cause we never bother to hear from the source
Re: Food For Thought - Inspirational Quotes by Cuddlemii: 11:44pm On Jul 13, 2012
"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
