What You Take For Granted… Disappears!

Filed under: Relationships — Larry James @ 6:11 pm

Taking your forever lover for granted drives a wedge between the two of you. Then comes the drifting apart you once feared. You become lonely, anxious and withdrawn.

What you take for granted, disappears!

You and your lover may still be together physically, however, most likely neither one of you are really there for each other.

To avoid the consequences of neglect, you will find that the only solution is the open talk you can allow yourself to have about it. Embrace your concerns. Sharing your true self with your love partner adds a new dimension to your relationship.

Allowing your love partner to know your inner-world; to know how you really feel, is sharing at a higher level; perhaps even a spiritual level. You will discover a higher source of strength.

Not being afraid of how your love partner will react is a true test of courage. Being willing to share yourself in this manner tells your lover the level of trust you are willing to express. When you lovingly communicate, the depth of connection that comes from this kind of intimate conversation, brings on a deeper experience of love, most desired yet difficult when you are inclined to withhold because of fear.

You make the choice.

Intimacy or separation. It is only and always in your hands. Talk or be silent and wait for the inevitable; the ultimate separation.
