" Heartaches are like old wounds. The more you cover things up, the more they will fester. In love, if you'll just set things free and let sentiments overflow, emotional anguish will eventually heal."

" If you don't find a way to express your anger, in a direct, constructive way, it will leak out as indirect, covert hostility, or it will eventually burst forth as explosive rage or violence. It might well attract you to angry people, with the unconscious intention of triggering your own anger."
Shakti Gawain

" A marriage without dialogue is a relationship buried alive. Dialogues between partners are like regular health check-ups for living a happy married life. They confirm trust, discover new emotions and feelings and prescribe ways for the partners to accommodate these new emotions to have a safe ride."

I think it's quite important.

" I believe that we all begin our lives as an incomplete puzzle, all different shapes and sizes but when complete, we present an amazing portrait. Yet when you receive a puzzle there is only one way to build it and ultimately one outcome. I believe we choose the puzzle we become, one step at a time. The beauty of our picture depends on the life we choose to live and the quality of the choices we make."

There are always going to be people in your life that don't have your best interests at heart. When they reveal themselves, make the choice to believe them. Move on and wish them the best.

" Love is wanting to give another that which is truly needed."
Copyright © 2007 Brian E. Roscher
I think there needs some clearing up in our modern day society on what constitutes love. Love means giving, not taking. Love is not the feeling one gets from another person when that person does something for you... that is called appreciation. Love means that after you've gotten to understand someone, you give to them what you think they really want or need. The more you give, the more you love. That is love.

" Trust should never be given as a gift; it should be earned as a reward. Trust wisely."
Copyright © 2007 Adelyn Ortlieb
It has helped me tremendously. It is a motto. It seems intuitive, yet it is so often ignored. It keeps positive people around me. These positive people deserve the trust I invest in them because they have earned it.

" Just because it's hard doesn't mean you have to quit."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Sara L. --- Michigan
I read this in a bulletin on MySpace a few months ago... I don't remember what all the posting was about, but this quote was at the end and it was sort of a smack in the face; I needed to take a big step to change my life and get out of the rut I've been stuck in for the past 2 years due to lack of success and this quote, as simple as it is, really opened my eyes.

" Self-respect is not a Holy Grail that is forever full. It is an oasis that must be replenished and refilled again and again through constant, consistent acts of compassion and honesty towards others. Failure to uphold one's ideals and principles will inevitably lead to a drying up of that oasis of self-respect, and we shall be forced to wander amidst the barren desert of despair and disillusionment."
