Intimacy cannot be found in one-way exchanges

Keywords: personal growth, emotional maturity

Ultimately, it’s the cumulative pattern of acceptance or rejection of these bids that makes or breaks relationships, builds or erodes trust, and is the difference between feeling close to or distant from the person in question.

The opportunity to be there for others — at some of the worst moments in their lives, no less — that is rare, and it is valuable to me

I don’t know why it means so much, but it does. This is why I’m here. It’s what I wrote about in my med school personal statement. It makes it all worth it, the late nights and early mornings and moving and debt and burning retinas on a computer screen. It is the opportunity to serve. This is why.

I love this person and there was a fall out, we are trying to propose the vision for this friendship

Keywords: personal development

It is my habit to play out the end game of a scenario and I have played out the end game in different ways in my head and I’m prepared to face it with peace. I have been thinking with myself, what I need to build this true friendship. I have never built a friendship intentionally, almost all my friendships happened naturally, it is not that this love and laughter did not start off as natural but it has been infected. I’m valuing meaningful friendships as I grow older and it is because I know that to reignite something you must build. This person taught me the importance of values and I intend to structure life around it.

What if the goal is not to agree, but instead to see and be seen?

What really helps us stay relationally connected is to experience being seen and heard, while also being accepted. This stimulates coherence in the limbic system – the emotional and attachment parts of our brains. In other words, when we’re aware that our inner reality is mirrored, known, and welcomed, it deepens our sense of belonging and security.

Allow yourselves to be a part of each other’s lives and lifestyles because nothing matters more than understanding someone’s way of life because that can either make you or break you as partners

I don’t believe that males and females can be just friends without something having been there or someone wishing circumstances were different and I always tell this to my boyfriend I am very uncomfortable with him having a deeper understanding and connection with his female friends then that he has or could ever develop for me. Now I cannot say society has influenced this feeling/decision but it has been experiences and that for me is an opinion that no one can change and one that I influence upon society because of the lack of mental and emotional relationships between partners.
