It is out of this creation of male and female that we see God’s design for marriage and family. A husband and wife come together in marriage, joining to each other in body, soul and spirit. And out of their union comes forth new life, children. That’s why Christians have such high regard for men, women and children — all of life. We celebrate and honor the image of God in each person.
Male and female personhood, sexuality, relationships and marriage contain so much that’s good — and all of that goodness points to God and reveals the goodness of His character. Our gender and sexuality were designed to lead us to joy, connection, life, growth, relationships, family, pleasure, children and marriage. God must really enjoy these things to have planned for us to participate in them!
More importantly, a woman’s confidence shall never decrease because her confidence in herself stems from Christ.
People will use you and make it feel like you’re wanted and needed.

Guys I think I’m going through another “midlife crisis”😅 so this semester I’m taking time off college cuz I really didn’t like it that much first semester and I wanted to just work and make some money to pay for college later. And at first that was great cuz I still had my high school job at a movie theater and loved it there(most of the time) and I was just so comfortable there and stuff but they don’t pay very well so I decided that I would get a second job to make a little more money. So I got hired at Starbucks which was great. When I first started it was great and I really did like it. After training was over and I actually got to start working for real I started to dislike it. And I hate when people ask how it’s going cuz I usually lie to them and say it’s going well and I hate lying about it but I just don’t like it that much. It might just be because it’s frustrating since I don’t know everyone well and I don’t know the job well but idk I just am not really feeling it anymore. But being the person I am I’m too scared to quit or anything so idk. I’ll at least stick with it a month to see if anything changes but idk. I just feel bad if I quit but I might do it. Hopefully things get better though. But also I’ve been thinking about how this job really isn’t getting me anywhere more than what my other job was. I kinda wanna go back to school starting over the summer semester, but I just don’t know what I wanna do which SUCKS. I just feel like I’m not doing anything with my life rn and I need to be doing SOMETHING ugh. It sucks so much and I just wanna sit at home and do nothing rn until I figure my life out but nope I gotta work at 4:30am tomorrow morning😬😅 welp we’ll see how this all goes. Maybe I’ll just hang in there at Starbucks until summer semester starts or something? Idk but everything happens for a reason so that’s what I’m counting on

Whether it’s in friendships or relationships, it’s natural in times of conflict to expect the other person to do, say, or behave the way we would (or how we want them to) but this rarely happens.
If you put 100 people in a room and ask them to describe the feeling they had walking in you’ll get 100 different descriptions.
Each of us has a unique lens of the world, based on our life experiences, relationships and unhealed wounds from the past.
It takes maturity and compassion to validate someone else in their reality even when it's conflicting with yours.
Our ego always wants to be right, but when we’re moving towards growth and healing in relationship, our greatest challenge is to let go, and be a witness to what is being reflected back to us.
When someone doesn’t agree with you, or sees the situation differently than you, it doesn’t mean anything about either of you other than the fact that you’re human. It's ok not to agree sometimes.
We all want our emotions and experiences to be validated - and in relationship, “the truth” is relative to what’s going on inside.
If we struggle with self-esteem, we may fight desperately to be seen or heard by our friends or partners rather than doing the deeper work and making it an inside job.
Understanding that others have their own stories and wounds to work through can allow us to enter a space of compassion rather than attachment in the moment.
When we care more about the heart of the person in front of us than we do about tending to the desires of the ego, we’re doing the hard work of creating Conscious Relationship.
One not built on needing the other to be the same as us, but loving them as they are.
And by the way, this kind of acceptance is usually only going to happen when you have learned to accept yourself too.
If you strongly dislike a part of yourself that you've labeled as too much or not enough, you’ll have a really hard time accepting another for those qualities too.
The right people come into your life when the wrong people leave.
If you have unfulfilling relationships, (friendships, family, work, peers, sexual) or are part of a relationship whereby you don’t feel valued or you feel your boundaries are constantly being tested. If you feel energetically drained within the relationship,then perhaps these relationships are not the right ones for you. The right people for you cannot turn up, until the wrong ones leave.
It’s important to reflect on what drew you to that relationship, what kept it going, and why you are still a part of it.
This is were your growth will take place. You will learn valuable information about yourself.
We all form attachments to others, mainly based on our own attachments with our caregivers, these attachments form the basis of all other relationships, and how you interact with others.
If you are unhappy with your life, you can change it, Counselling & Psychotherapy is the most effective way to do this.

Rumor has it that Lady Gaga and Jeremy Renner are an item. ‘She has been friends with Jeremy Renner for a while, they often hang out when they are both in town,’ a source told E! ‘She’s been spending time with but it’s not romantic,’ This relationship speculation comes one month after Lady Gaga ended her relationship with fiancé Christian Carino.
Hahaha For real plus unconditional love, attention, gifts, nonstop jokes and accents, always ready to listen and talk. Super loyal, faithful, devoted never will wonder what my intentions are. No stress, mind games, or wondering. My excellent healthy cooking, frugal financial skills and Argan oil hair treatments will be life-changing.

Perfect mixture of back packing combined with fine luxury traveling. Food and massages on the beach. Summer BBQ's and night swimming at home. Future wife so lucky. 😂 A king marrying a queen. And together we just grow and progress and take everything to next level.
Если нашли своё счастье - не перевоспитывайте, не пилите, не ругайтесь, а любите❤️.
Я чaсто вижу посты, в которых люди говорят, что быть с человеком - знaчит бeсконeчно ощущать бaбочeк в животe и то, как сильно бьется сердце рядом с этим человеком. На сaмом дeлe, всe совсeм не тaк. Бабочки со временем улетают из твоего живота, когдa вы нaчинaeтe жить вмeстe. Твое сeрдцe нe бьeтся с бeшeной скоростью, когдa ты видишь своeго любимого, но вмeсто этого ты ощущaeшь полное спокойствие, будто всe нa своих мeстaх. Ты больше не ощущаешь американских горок внутри, ты просто ощущаешь, что ты дома. Ты под защитой, тебе хорошо.
Ты нe будeшь как в кино спать у него на плече, вы будете спать по-разному, но все равно рядом, каждую ночь. Иногда он будет притягивать тебя к себе во сне, чтобы ощутить, что ты рядом и все хорошо. А утром ты будeшь утыкаться в его грудь прeждe, чeм вылезать из кровати. Поцелуи тоже будут нe всeгдa стрaстными. Они будут разными, и будут знaчить намного большe. Будут холодными, когдa вы будете есть морожeноe лeтним днeм, липкими послe сладких блинчиков, или мимолeтными в мaгaзинaх.
Вы нe всeгдa будeтe писaть друг другу длинные сообщeния о любви, кaк это бывает в начале отношений. Теперь у вас появятся свои шутки и серьезные обсуждeния жизни. Отношeния нe всeгдa скaзкa, а совместная жизнь не фeйeрвeрки в ней. Но они все также будут наполнены любовью и зaботой. Эти чувства будут уже не только в твоeм сeрдцe, a в вaшeм общeм. Именно поэтому я безумно счастлива и люблю тебя до сих пор.❤️ #love#loves#couple#couples#adorable#kiss#kisses#hug#hugs#romance#heart#hearts#forever#instagramanet#girlfriend#girlfriends#boyfriend#boyfriends#gf#bf#bff#together@instagramanet#instalove#russianwomen#loveher#lovehim#relationship#relationships#amour
You and I assumed forever
when we became companions.
But now, unhappy, you are leaving. The sky turns to bitter candescence unslaked by resignation.

A committed devoted person will never leave you wondering where you stand. Never play with your emotions. Never leave you wondering. Life is hard enough, relationships are supposed to be peaceful. Relationships are supposed to be lit and dope. Dates, food, sex, and trips. Not arguing nonstop and bad vibes.
Dating is extra hard in this city. In other states and countries we can go for a walk on the beach, get street food, watch free shows, and live performances on the boardwalk and piers. Here everything is a production, it has to be planned, it's a hassle, nothing good is casual and cheap. When dating someone help them plan, and come up with new ideas on things to do and places to go. Don't leave it all on one person, it gets difficult and discouraging to go out when everything is on one person.
