Breaking Relationships

Tapestries frayed with time don’t hold the same face held in place by pure will and strength afraid to let go the fear of the unknown: who? who would replace? non-severed ties tug on strings pulling back together bumping into things that smother where flowers decay and¬†green shoots wither it seems like i’m stuck inContinue reading “Breaking Relationships”

Others are Our Mirrors

People are in our lives for us to learn from them. Within our relationships we have the ability to learn great lessons about ourselves. Sometimes this can be a lesson in love. Other times we have difficult lessons to learn to show us where we love-not. Regardless of the nature of the lesson, the wayContinue reading “Others are Our Mirrors”

Relationships: Insecure Attachments

Sometimes we go through life completely unaware of some of our own inner mechanisms and motivations.

Self-Blaming in Relationships

“Did I build this ship to wreck?” Florence + The Machine On many levels, I have blamed myself for the relationships that ¬†failed to root, blossom or thrive and thus dying on the vine.

Opening Your Heart

The heart is at the center of our being. When we are in our heart we feel. So often, we live in fear of what we feel, closing off the communication between ourselves and our hearts. We become distant and cold, disconnected and afraid. With opening into our hearts, we open into feelings and emotionsContinue reading “Opening Your Heart”
