A broken heart is. Colors left behind give clues to whom was involved.
Wanda worked hard at her friendship. She went into it with optimism. She had chosen deliberately to do this, the steps toward taking care of herself. Taking these steps, like climbing a fine promise, notarized contract in hand. She had the confidence of one who has turned aside from indenturehood to property.
Did Wanda get what she thought she would?
Miles was a good-looking man with nicely aged skin, obvious strength anyone noticed in his muscled limbs, and grooves more than wrinkles on his intense face. He never lacked expression. He was intense. And it was with this body and emotion that he went into his relationship with Sara.
Did Miles get what he thought he would?
The most intimate exchanges, the most elemental, the very basic level of love to Me, you or any other is disappointing when it is a negotiation. We will never get back what we gave for. Relationships are never satisfying when they are mercantile, even with Me.
Question: How do you get out of a mercantile relationship with yourself? How do you give in friendship to “Me” without defined parameters of what you will get back? When you do, what has happened in your relationship with “Me?”
Self-Care Tip: Grow friendship with yourself as a lover not a merchant.
Be as Good To Yourself As You Want Your Loved Ones to Be to Themselves
What Comes To Me From Others Is a Gift
Connecting to Others is a Condition of Freedom Rather Than Loss of It.
