Growing Together In Love

Growing Together In Love

A relationship based in mutual growth is a wonderful adventure of discovery.

To cultivate a deeper sense of self, to develop the values of integrity, honesty and transparency; to uncover the life force that beats within each of us and inspires us to be the best we can be as human beings; to realize our highest aspirations and to spark change for the common good – these are the fruits of a relationship based in growth.

Often we take for granted the time we spend with our families, our partners, our friends. Lost in the monotony of routine, we miss out on opportunities to love, to share, to celebrate life together. When we feel dissatisfied with life, we inevitably look to our partners, children or others to provide us with the affection and happiness we feel is missing. Yet if we are demanding love from another, the relationship will inevitably suffer; patience will soon run out and the joy of the relationship will be lost amongst reproaches and complaints, eclipsing the appreciation and gratitude that nurtures and causes growth.

Within a relationship, there is nothing more wonderful than two individuals taking responsibility for loving themselves, pushing each other into their greatness, supporting each other to be the best of themselves, to develop their potential, and embrace full human consciousness.

Thankyou, it's so true. We have to love ourselves, to enjoy our own company, to trust ourselves. When I separated from an abusive relationship I made sure I got used to ME first before embarking on a new relationship. Now I have been with my partner for four years, we love each other, have grown together and have a completely honest relationship.
