To be completely honest with you, I love, love. I have a master’s degree in counseling; however, my life experience provide me with much more knowledge than any classroom or book could ever provide. Over the years, I have learned that at the core, people are generally the same. We want to be in loving relationships with our family and friends, professional yet, friendly relationships with our colleagues and meaningful and passionate relationships with our spouse or partner.
I, too, want all of these things and for the most part, I have them. No, my life is not perfect. Trust me, I have had my share of disappointments, heartbreaks, disrespect and disgust, but I was able to walk away from each of those situations with a new perspective and a new sense of self.
Relationships are at the core of our being. We need to be in relationship with others in order for our lives to feel purposeful. Most importantly, how we interact with others ultimately determines our own character and sense of self. This website was designed for the sole purpose of sharing relationship advice, true stories, an honest perspective and being that friend that everyone needs without judgment.
I can promise you, I will never share something with you that is not true. I have experienced tremendous highs and very low lows. The truth is, we all do. None of us has life down to a science. If we did, life would be rather boring.
How many times have you overcome some obstacle and looked backed at it and laughed, thanked God and/ or shared your story with someone else? That is what life and love are all about. I call it the cycle of giving. What you give out will be given back to you. If you are giving the best of you, the best will eventually come your way.
In your relationships do not be afraid to love hard, no matter how many times you have been hurt or disappointed in the past. To receive love you must give love. This is not just in your romantic relationships, but this same principle can be applied to your family, friends and colleagues. Now, you aren’t going to be “in love” with your colleagues, but respect and honor are forms of love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 keeps replaying in my mind. ” Now these 3 remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”.
Remember love, if you want to receive love,
