There is a thing called the RELATIONSHIP BOX. Lots of people assume, when they start a new relationship, that this box is full of all the things they have longed for. And that is why they believe this Relationship is all that they need to be truly happy.

The truth is, when we start any Relationship, the box is empty, and it is our responsibility to make it full, adding more and more into it, planting the seeds that are a reflection of our core values. It is our choice what we plant there.

Will you plant the seeds of love, commitment, the balance of giving and receiving, responsibility, respect, trust, appreciation, compassion and understanding? Or will you plant the seeds of blame, control, judgement, dishonesty, lack of responsibility or victim mentality? Remember, whatever you plant together, you will harvest together later on. You must put something in before you can take anything out.

If you build healthy, strong foundations at the beginning, you can enjoy it’s strength and beauty for many years to come…
