    HI”
    I really love every ones comment!

    As for me, just as people come in all shapes and sizes, so do many religions”.

    I truly believe that all religions have a common core. And that is to respect” one another by doing right”.( LOVE )

    So I feel that everything will be okay”, because you both seem to have that in your relationship or you wouldn’t be together”.

    I feel that you should go, because being in a relationship requires compromise/ happy medium/ of understanding at times”…

    WHO knows? there might be a time when you need him to get out of his comfort zone”. And because he’s with you and LOVES you, he will…because you did for him…So smile and Enjoy Xmas!

    I come to understand that all nature” plays a pacific role” in our universe”… From the biggest thing such as the sun”… to the most miniature thing as a pebble”.. Elephant” to a Bee- hummingbird”… (Bee- hummingbird ) look it up” really cool!

    Nature has a sad/ funny/ wild/ lovable/ way of showing us unique things, rhythms and set patterns of life” to learn” from…while also enjoying it at the same time.

    Animals are no different” then we are. They protect/ mate/ kill/ struggle/ group/ use strategy/ eat/ and play.
    Just as we come in different shapes and sizes, and from all over the world, so do animals and plants”.

    Nature sustains” us for what we need. Such as our ways of living, how we design” things based off nature. Homes/ vehicles/ clothing/ food/ medicine/ war/ survival… And the unknown set for us to explore”.

    I have come to learn that we all have a part” in it. And that we are not in control”. Giants” but only a mere spec” in the universe of nature.

    HI”
    words for thought”…

    If life” didn’t have contrast”…..would we know the difference?

    meaning ( there is no such thing as light” without dark” )…The universe isn’t made to go back”…only forward, through time as it exist”

    Life” to me, is about choices and lessons”. mistakes” are just part of the game”… AS long as you don’t keep on repeating” the same ones.

    And I truly feel that you are learning” from your past”. Because your heart can still feel the wrong or guilt that you might of had done to others”…so that you won’t repeat”.

    So try your best to let go, and breathe”… it’s okay, how else do you think we change as people? GROWTH”

    HI” I just want to start off by saying that I really appreciate” you all, it takes a lot of courage” to speak about things so deep within.

    I completely understand how you feel. I to have the same problem.

    From my childhood all the way to my adult stages, I’ve been in negative verbal battles with people that I love. Family/ friends/and work mates.

    Do to the fact that of my own ego” and of being hurt” by others. Some how down the line, without even knowing it, I became defensive”…

    Meaning ( I put a self block mentally )to protect” myself unconsciously against others.

    It might seem good at first, but the truth is, at least in my case, I push people that really care” about me away. It’s a giant sign waving at me, telling me to let go and stop being overly sensitive.”

    Two things that I didn’t know how to do”…. I come to find out, that with the practice of listening” to others first in a conversation before” I speak.” meaning ( really hearing and taking in what a person is saying before hand ). When I do this, I realized that there is no called for reason to be on the defensive” mode.

    Last I had to drop my ego.”
    Meaning ( let it go” ) even if someone is knocking you down verbally”. You still don’t have to react on it… You have the right to be upset or even hurt by what someone might say against you. But never” let it get to the point where it destroys your bubble.”
    Try to focus on thinking that no one can upset you but you! ( people will still be people ).
    Try to surround” yourself with people who genuinely care about you.”
