There is something entirely fascinating about the attraction between a man and a woman.

We want it, we need it and we crave the sweet joy that comes from forging a soul connection with our partner.

Yet, all too often we grow cynical of love and believe that life is better alone; without the danger of getting hurt or the prospect of feeling caged in and controlled.

What we don’t realize is that our relationships are only as good as we are and that we can’t feel loved without being in love – with ourselves and with others.

To make your relationships delightful, you have to be delighted. To enjoy your partner you have to enjoy yourself. To avoid getting hurt you have to stop inflicting pain.  And to experience true intimacy you have to let go of the fear of being vulnerable. It’s then that you touch your partner’s soul.

It’s a risk but it’s a risk worth taking.

Ultimately, we can only be our best selves in the light of the people around us.

We risk nothing by being alone.

As always, thank you for reading.
