Why Relationships Fail

Sacredness is part of a loving relationship. Complaining about your partner to someone else diminishes the sacredness between you. Instead, lift your partner up with your thoughts, focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses. Everyone has flaws and faults; love is about accepting them as they are with all their imperfections and loving them anyway.

Every relationship has its challenges. Being supportive rather than derisive will keep you bonded through those difficulties and allow you to grow stronger as a couple. When a storm arises and it will, you will have the foundation to weather the storm together. 

Two Phrases That Show You Are Truly Loving

Love is when you choose to be at your best when the other person is not at their best. Rev. Wintley Phipps

Love is when what you want is never important, but when the other person’s needs and wants are always paramount. That is what true love is. Rev. Wintley Phipps

Reverend Wintley Phipps has been happily married for 39 years. He has been on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sundays multiple times. 

Case Study:

Two of my clients have been working with me for several years. They have weathered the storms of life, raising two children and running two households. Now they are working together to support her breast cancer healing through natural means using Gerson Therapy. The root cause of cancer is deep hurt, longstanding resentment eating away at the self. Unless the root cause is healed cancer, no matter how it is eliminated will return, because the cause remains. 

Breast cancer has created challenges for the two of them. However, they have leaned on each other, focusing on each other’s needs compassionately. When one is feeling down, the other lifts them up. Love is about lifting up the other when they are down. Compassion, understanding, caring and mutual support is all part of a loving relationship.
