Organic Growth

Having someone pull the weight on their own, in any relationship dynamic, may keep things from spiraling further. This can work as a temporary measure until a more sustainable one is set in place. However, if this becomes a long-term strategy, then we can only expect to go one step forward and four steps backward …

My heart has chosen

The natural state of things is when things are flowing. When something becomes an obstruction to this flow, it can result to feelings of hurt, confusion and hopelessness. The only way to unblock the clog is by being brave enough to admit where you're feeling stuck, in which direction your soul doesn't agree of letting …

Commitment

At some point, "commitment" embodies a new shape and form. When you were young, you used it as a way to tie yourself with another, so you can spend time together and share similar experiences. So you can have more fun, so you are less afraid/alone, so you feel more whole. Once you've lived in …
