Relationships - safe, genuine, honest, real, meaningful, free to be me, nurturing. That is what a real relationship means to me. What are the "must haves" that make a relationship real for you?
Relationships, all of them - not just couples, require investment, being in the moment, putting aside technology, connecting in a real and authentic way.
If you can speak your truth, have your voice, be allowed your feelings, allowed to say no thank you - then to me *that* is a real and authentic relationship. If you can't have those things, if you must twist yourself into something you're not to please someone who isn't pleased in the end anyway then what's the point? What exactly are you holding on to and hoping for? .
At that point either you have to change into something you're not or the other person has to change into something they are not. Why not just allow others to just be and set them free to be who they are and you be you? If that works together then great, if not allow others their space and freedom to be the human they are and wish to be. Free Will, free choice.
It works so much better to walk beside others in their journey through life, support them where we can, cheer them on when needed, let them travel their individual journey instead of either pushing them or pulling them to our wishes. What do you think?
