Thought provoking sage and deeply deep. by +Sheila Jackson
Relationships are not all the same
I think that many look to greener pastures feeling empty because what they see as wonderful seems to be absent from their existence.
They look to others deciding that there style of excitement loving must be that to be real, that gentle consistent peaceful loving is a lie of sorts.

There are those who crave excitement, stimulation created by angst, insecurity rather than security, pushing pulling behaviors prove prove prove you love exercises in futility.

How much pressure, aggression, argument and disrespect can you take before you throw in the towel?

It becomes a life lived on the edge of doom, failure, rise, falling catching existences of turmoil that are unresolved and ongoing.

Relationships, that in my mind exist only to fail; the make up love being viewed as better than the solidity of trust respect loyalty and devotion that are an integral part of healthy long lasting relationships.

For many it is living the reality of early childhood experiences of lack, by that I mean “ not having basic emotional and psychological needs met in a way that fosters gentle loving. I equate it to being starved of consistency, of love relationship with caretakers that gift safety and security.

A child of such circumstance often lives unlovable consequences learning what love is not. Eventually after many failed relationships they come to realize that love has nothing to do with their early life, and perhaps young adult experiences.

Harsh loving often leads one to loving through a mediation process of tension; through the processes of you do not love me if you are not capable of living through the torturous tests that I have put in place to deem you worthy of my company.

Unknown to these individuals is the fact that there is a quiet excitement to trust, to faithful patience, to joyous interchange between those who respect themselves first, for those who love themselves first, for those who have learned that as I treat myself well the rest of life shall present itself through my honorable truthful engage.

Some might call it silly to think that treating others as you wish to be treated is fool hardy. Some might say that trusting others before they have proven themselves is foolish thinking prone to failure. Yes, in today’s world many abuse trust, many see love and life as a game to be played, list or won.

There are those who view those persons that choose to live a quiet kindness beyond fear as gullible. In fact such a life is anything but gullible living, instead it is living in the open not hiding from the past hurts, nor living in fear of future rejection. It is living trusting that all of life is meant to be, that all of of life is fuel for your better you creation, no blame, no shame no self imposed or gifted guilt to others.

To be who you are truthfully, to live treating others as you wish to be treated is essential to my way of thinking.
You do not tear down to build up. You do not accuse, condemn and humiliate to build a long lasting relationship. You do not lie, cheat, defame or steal by taking advantage of another’s trust to live your happily ever after.

Relationship, good relationships are built on the solid foundations of respect, trust, forgiveness and love.

I think of it this way. I respect you so I listen to your words hearing often what you do not say.

I hold my words before I utter that which can never be erased from soul.

I mediate my selfishness because being in a relationship requires sacrifice, it is no longer a life based upon me only thinking.

I say no to advances that feed my ego instead of my soul.

I hold myself responsible for my thoughts deeds and outcomes.

I take time to think things through before I act or react because another’s heart and soul are of great concern to me

I do not hide my fear or insecurity because talking it trough obliterates it’s power over my wrong thinking doing life with others.

Everyone is human, by that very nature we are prone to error, that said we are responsible to ourselves for ourselves and to those that hold a place in our lives.

Relationships take more than dreaming, but loving and being loved are so worth the work.

Note: this is not personal to my life, it is not a message to anyone in particular. I have been reading a lot on personal growth and healing...this is the result

No one gets through life unscathed. Some live lives of torture and sorrow more than others yet none of that gives us the right to indiscriminately hurt harm and injure another’s soul.
