So much of what we do and what we feel is lost in translation. Literally. How we communicate as partners; man/woman, husband/wife, Dom/sub (what ever your titles may be) is so unique to each of us. We have innate tendencies, learned behaviors, and choice to contend with.
How is it that some relationships can flourish and others spiral to a bitter end?
You commit to love. You commit to a relationship that is based on GIVING love and not taking. When you both have a commitment to GIVE love you are not focused on what you may or may not have received. You feel truly grateful to have what you do and each day opens with a new opportunity to love. You share in your partners victories, because you have GIVEN them all they needed to achieve their goal. You focus on how you can better love your partner. Is your partner deserving of your GIVING love? No, they are deserving of MORE!
What do you do when one of you fails to GIVE?
You wake up fresh. And, you start GIVING again tomorrow.
I am thankful to be GIVEN love every day.
I am even more thankful that I have someone to GIVE my love to.
