When I Say, ‘I love you,’ It’s Not Because I Want You Or Because I Can’t Have You

When I Say, ‘I love you,’ It’s Not Because I Want You Or Because I Can’t Have You

When I say, ‘I love you,’ it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you.
It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a person.

It’s Okay To Want Validation From A Partner

It's Okay To Want Validation From A Partner

It’s okay to want validation from a partner.

In fact, it’s reasonable, normal, and healthy to receive and offer love and support that reminds each other of the security, gratitude, and acknowledgment that is vital for relationships to thrive. This isn’t about outsourcing worth or not being able to self-validate; it’s about creating room to be nourished by one another without attaching shame to the request.

Your Relationship Being ‘Private’

Your Relationship Being Private

Your relationship being ‘PRIVATE’ doesn’t mean that you should move like you’re not even in a relationship!

People should know you’re in one, based on how you maneuver and how you operate.

The respect you have for your partner should be LOUD, even if your relationship isn’t.

Problems Within Any Relationship Can Be Resolved

If They Want To Talk To You, They Will

If They Want To Talk To You They Will

If they want to talk to you, they will. If they want to be with you, they will. If they want to make things work, they will. Don’t allow any relationship you’re involved in to be one-sided. It’s not healthy and it’s not fair to you.
