I was really shocked to learn that our buddy, during college, Shah,
passed away due to heart attack. It made me realize that life is so
fragile and death can do us apart anytime.
This tells me that I must spend the time given to us through the
best way I can. Enjoy life with the ones I luv don't take them
for granted. Appreciate what I have, be empathetic...feel for others.
This will make me a more sensitive and a better person.
Trust is often taken for granted when it comes to intimate relationships. You worry about your partner cheating on you. Without trust in one another, intimacy cannot grow and your relationship can become stuck.
So, these are what i thought would help other than confiding to Him:
1. Let go of the past.
Almost every one of us has had a past incidents. Tune into your current situation and allow yourself to move on from those old hurts. Breathe and remind yourself to let go of the past and focus on what’s currently going on.
2. Be yourself.
Sometimes we hide habits, tendencies, even desires that are important to us because we don’t trust that our partner will approve of them. We undercut intimacy by keeping this barrier up to hide what we think won’t be loved. In effect, we don’t feel lovable as our true selves. Make it a goal to appreciate yourself. Chances are your love will be more accepting than you think.
3. Listen and understand.
Communicating is vital to everyone wanting to increase intimacy in a relationship. When situations come up that challenge your trust in the other person, stop and ask him or her questions about what appears to be happening. It is likely that your perceptions are not accurate. Listen with an open heart and allow yourself to understand what is going on for the other person.
These 3 ways can help you begin to turn a relationship weak in trust into one where strong trust fosters deeper intimacy. It starts with letting go, loving yourself, and listening with an open heart.
