SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

It may be true that we often seek in others that which we are not willing to give ourselves. This is a correctable mistake. It is not a good reason to be in a relationship. If we are only being with someone for what they can do for us, that is called dependency.

What we think we lack, we think we will find in someone else. The sense of self we assume we lack can never happen by osmosis. What we think we need from others can never rub off on us. Being with a love partner who has the qualities we lack does not necessarily enable us to acquire those desired qualities ourselves.

It is simply only your choice to give yourself what you think you lack. What a wonderful gift. You deserve it! You do this through the awareness self-discovery inspires.

Being with someone who is independent will not cure our own leaning toward dependency. You must do this on your own. And preferably before entering into a new relationship. You alone hold the key to the cure.

It is time for us to know that we lack nothing. Nothing, except perhaps the insight to know that we already have everything there is, including that which we seek from someone else. We have only yet to discover it within ourselves. This takes time and patience and understanding and lots of love for ourselves. And you have to want to!

You must never withhold discovery of self from yourself.

Read the rest of Larry's thoughts about "No Withholds" at: http://www.CelebrateLove.com/nowithholds.htm.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Working together in a love relationship to get your individual needs met and the mutual needs of the relationship and not have expectations about how those needs get met will always generate new things to talk about. Having expectations about how your needs get met is not only unrealistic it is an unhealthy attitude.

For example, if I expect you to love me a certain way and your love doesn't show up that way for me, I will most likely be disappointed. A better way might be to have your need for being loved fulfilled by allowing your love partner to love you the way they love you. Being okay with how they love you creates a sense of adventure; it creates new and exciting possibilities for the two of you to experience together. Often challenges show up.

However, when two people really love each other and are committed to work together, challenges like these create the kind of conversation that empowers both love partners to continue to self-inquire. They then choose to investigate their curiosities about what they can do to stand together, to be challenged by this new way of being and know that everything is going to be okay.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Feelings are always very real for the one who feels them. When your lover expresses feelings. . . validate them. Let them know that it is okay to feel that way, even when you disagree. When you invalidate your love partner's feelings, generally disagreement follows. Never argue with anyone's feelings. It's an argument you can never win.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Remember to flirt with your lover, the way you did when you first met. Toss out those subtle little signals that tell your lover you are still interested; signals that show you remember the real magic that lit the fire in the beginning.

From the book, "LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing!" by Larry James

Featured Relationship Article

Read "Looking Out For #1" - Never allow anything to have a higher priority than looking out for number one. You are all you have. Never allow anyone, not even your love partner, to rob you of the single most important personal responsibility of your life. You must take care of you first. Only then will you be ready to face the daily realities of a love relationship.

LoveNote. . . "Larry James was an amazing officiant for our wedding! He helped make our ceremony very unique by working with us to customize what we wanted for our ceremony. The ceremony was very spiritual and uplifting and we loved the humor within it as it is a nervous time for all at the alter! Larry made us comfortable and at ease.

We had many positive comments from our friends and family who attended our wedding about how beautiful and inspirational the words and vows were and that they very much enjoyed them. This was very special to us, not only were these words special to us, but those that shared the day with us. It is exactly what we wanted for our wedding day!" - Simone & Dale Skjerseth
