What Is True Love?
What is the true definition of love for you? Most people feel that the capacity to be part of a wholesome, caring, love relationship is a natural ability possessed by all however they are incorrect. What studies have found is that the basis or foundation of one’s ability to enter into and maintain a loving caring relationship begins in one’s childhood.

Relationships are not written in the stars, but they seem to be built from existing models that have been learned from experience or at least gleaned through social contact. As much as understanding how to be in a relationship comes from relationship advice from your circle of influence it is not always right for you. If you have ever watched your parents do you feel they know how to be in a relationship? They were your primary source of education in regards to relationship advice.
Many people dread having the same experience that their parents did. And then you have those who look for signs of a healthy relationship by comparing their love life to that of their parents’.
How To Ruin A Relationship
Unsuccessful relationships can and do occur for a myriad of reasons, and the breakdown of a relationship is often the cause of high emotional agony and even physical distress which affect lives in so many negative results. One thing is certain, relationships are not to be taken lightly. They need to have much attention allocated to them and sincere efforts to do what needs to be done to ensure both parties are happy and fulfilled.
Can Lack Of Affection Ruin A Relationship?
Are we all just looking for affection or more? What do we all really want out of life; purpose, meaning, peace, acceptance, and if you are like most people a loving fulfilling relationship. When relationships are new there is an inert desire to create a bond, a desire to get as close as possible to your new partner. Energetically this results in an inter-mingling of your energy fields. When this happens, you experience your reality and theirs. As the relationship develops you may lose your clear connection with exactly who you are and crave your space.
“Love doesn’t make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” Franklin P. Jones
“True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element of calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.” Ellen G. White
Where does the disjoint come in? Interpersonal commitment is part of the involvement stage in relationship development and continued connection. Many relationships never reach this stage because it requires open, honest communication and trust. The lack of trust in each other can cause individuals to lose their personal space. To lose the ability to just be who they are. Not allowing people their personal space can be a sign of an unhealthy relationship. Signs of a deteriorating relationship are when an emotional withdrawal occurs from either or both of the partners.
Whenever there is a misalignment; there are ensuing relationship problems and an out of a balanced relationship. This misalignment can be in many areas however the most evident is the separation of yourself from yourself. Sounds confusing! You may have lost sight of your connection with the true you, your wants desires, needs, and aspirations as well as possibly your spiritual nature. Learning how to make a relationship work can be challenging but not impossible.
