Why is this important? Because you need to know what truly makes you feel loved, so that you can communicate that to those who love you. Something that couples must learn – if they are to succeed in their marriage relationship. Assuming that HOW you love someone is good enough because it means something to you, is an unfortunate mistake that most people make.
From the time we are little children to the time that we have grown and are raising children of our own, we are following a blueprint.
Thoughts, dreams, and desires that you have as a child is very clear. You want to be a fireman, or an actress, or an artist, or a teacher. Simple.
What happens to those dreams? They are rewritten with “shoulds” that come from teachers, parents, friends, movies, church, and life events that blur and then change what matters to you most into what you think it should be.
Unless we are intentional about our choices in life, we are not making decisions consciously but unconsciously.
When we react instead of act in life, we are reacting to the meanings we’ve put to things that are causing us pain.
Those ‘things’ are the ever-running, non-stop, negative tapes that each of us struggle with internally.
Notice who you have surrounded yourself with in your life. What are the results that you are getting and are you where you want to be?
