In my previous Relationships posts #1 – 9,  I indicated that during my wanderings through the internet, I’d come across a lot of statements and quotes about relationships. So it time to share some more of my favourites:

  1. Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. i-love-you
  2. Sometimes two people need to step apart and make a space between that each might see the other anew, in a glance across a room or silhouetted against the moon. ~ Robert Brault 
  3. When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are. ~ Donald Miller
  4. To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow – this is a human offering that can border on miraculous ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
  5. Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us. ~ David Richo
  6. The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too ~ Ernest Hemingway
  7. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust
  8. It is usually the case that people who know you better than you know yourself think you’re a pretty good person. ~Robert Brault
  9. Today, befriend a stranger, or if you feel up to more of a challenge, befriend a loved one. ~Robert Brault
  10. Jealousy is the art of counting someone else blessings instead of your own.  Don’t waste your time on jealousy.  The only person you’re competing against is yourself

My personal favourite is #8, just because it’s true, even although none of us will admit it!

I hope you never take your closest relationships for granted as suddenly finding these people no longer in your life one day will cause you heartache and pain, so look after your relationships by telling those you love just how much they mean to you.
