I often become attached to my idea of a relationship and… sure that I absolutely know what’s best… push forward with all of my will.
One of my best friends recently said to me that this is one of my best and worst qualities: that when I love someone… I give my entire heart freely and bravely.
But I am learning that sometimes… it is best to give passion a bit of a space… to see if it is the intensity that is driving my feelings.
It is easy to fall in love: the feeling of newness… like a drug… is addictive and seducing.
But I have to look past that at the person that I am with and decide: Is this the best partner for me?
Slowing things down, giving the relationship space, allows me to do just that.
If I stay in the relationship just to “experience” a feeling of euphoria brought on by the newness of it all… then I’m not being true to myself.
I must use space to let the intensity cool and decided if within the confines of a particular relationship if it is a complimentary bond for both myself and my new partner.
If not, I must be honest, and let it go.
“Dear God, help me to be humble and truthful in all of my relationships. Help me do what is best for all involved.”
