We get involved in relationships oftentimes not for the right reasons:
1. Feeling empathy for the other person
2. Feeling sympathy for the other person
3. Anger from a previous relationship or rebound
6. Money issues
It is important to go into relationships with your eyes wide open. The previous reasons only makes you trapped, susceptible, vulnerable, and unable to truly share your true self with another sensible person. It also allows for repeating of the same relationship mistakes.
It’s always best to have a good sit down and hash things out before jumping in. Clear the clutter or baggage, and talk as mature adults about expectations.
It may not feel romantic or feel goody, but it pays off long term. You are both happier and the pressure of being in a negatively charged relationship is now eliminated.
Women and men should be able to have friendships without sex. The expectations of sex should be removed and replaced with adult conversations, goals and expectations. The pressures and discomforts of sexual energy must be replaced with friendships.
This is the only way for relationships, especially in this day and age of bed buddies, to grow into meaningful relationships and not just ships passing each other casually in the night at bars, hotels, motels, clubs, etc.
We need to bring back meaning into relationships by being more perceptive and mindful.
I didn’t use morality because I feel it should be a natural behavior or thought. But I’ve realized over the years morality is relative to many. It isn’t, its constant. There’s good and there’s bad, no in betweens. Food for thought.
It does not have to be public
You are different…
It does not have to be a brawl
Your difference makes you great…
Loud screaming not necessary…
You can be heard…
Fight back with quiet intentions
Do you and do it right
Be happy with who you are
Where you are and aspire to achieve those dreams
Meet those goals
Never Give Up
It all fights back for you
So you got an education
Became a …
But folks just not happy
Because you didn’t become a …
Or graduated as the ….
Did you do your very best?
Are you happy with what you’ve attained?
Where else do you see yourself?
What more would you like to do?
All this planning an achieving
How does it help your fellow man?
Can you see?
It’s ok…most of us do not
Until much later
When we open our eye of understanding and truly feel
No one, and I mean no one has to walk a mile in YOUR shoe
So why let anyone impact how that shoe fits?
Mom, dad, Aunty, uncle are all well intentioned. And it is wise to listen, absorb, observe what they are actually saying and where their experiences have brought them. But, in the grand scheme of things their best intentions must align itself with your hopes, dreams and reality.
Make a Difference
I pray, you do what makes a difference to you in your lifetime and you see how it has effected change in the natural and spiritual world around you. Take nought for granted because everything in life has a reason.
Being Great to Yourself
Rest your physical body when you can. Don’t treat it recklessly because you will need it. Spend time in the spirit because He is everything, He has a plan an a divine purpose for your existence. So be a great Stewart, and don’t forget to be great to yourself in your successes.
