A good friend sends me various memes he enjoys.
The reason we both liked this, as it represents a committment to really make it work. The relationship that is.
Let's imagine both people within a relationship understand the nature of past traumatic events and how those affect our responses and reactions to current experience.
__When we can learn to separate our past negative experiences from where we are in the moment, it does become easier to interact gently and tenderly with others who ARE very special to us.
So many of us have had difficulty being able to feel safe enough to speak freely. This limits our ability to engage fully in healthy ways within those relationships.
Funny how people seem to hurt most, the ones we are supposed to love.
Communication which is honest and tender creates so much more positive interaction, AND, it is one of the greatest types of foreplay one can experience.
We each may feel we have made grave mistakes in past relationships, yet give yourself credit if you believe you learned from those experiences.
Life IS all about learning, and subsequently having better interactions and relationships with special ones.
In studying long term relationships for my masters degree, the biggest reason older couples quote as one of the most important pieces of "glue" which held them together? Being able to push through rough times TOGETHER, which they say made them a more solid couple.
Just like the cartoon, when there are no safety reasons to be concerned with in a relationship, two people CAN find ways to really love each other. It can be wonderful when we find this quality together with another.
My wish is you all find this, or if you have, that you are able to keep it.
What a lovely way to feed yours and your partners souls.
