Quotes on Relationships

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and sharing of pleasures.  For in the dew of little things, the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”
~ Khalil Gibran

“Relationships do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you.”
~ Eckhart Tolle

“Love means giving someone the chance to hurt you but trusting them not to. When you completely trust a person, without any doubt, you’ll automatically get one of two results – a friend for life, or a lesson for life. Either way, there’s a positive outcome. Either you confirm the fact that this person cares about you, or you get the opportunity to weed them out of your life and make room for those who do. In the end, you’ll discover who’s fake, who’s true, and who would risk it all for you.”
~ unknown

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
~ Kahlil Gibran

“It takes an opening of the heart to be able to recognize someone who has something to teach you, who can help you grow, who can take you beyond where you are now.”
~ Justine Baruch

“You don’t need to be perfect to be a perfect friend or lover, but the commitment to your relationship is a precious responsibility. Relationships last a lifetime only when two people make a deliberate choice to keep it, fight for it, and work for it. These acts of love don’t need to be extravagant either; they just need to be true. And true love is always shown in deeds, not just words.”
~ Marc Chernoff

“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.”
~ Maya Angelou

“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them in an option.”
~ Maya Angelou

“If the feelings are mutual, the effort will be equal”
~ unknown

“The fact that the word lovesick exists, that the simple absence of a person can make you feel physically ill, says a great deal about the terrible power of the human heart.”
~ Beau Taplin

“Life has its mysteries. One of these great mysteries is the way a romantic partner shows up in our lives. The understanding of this mystery can only be understood if we are open to the adventure of knowing ourselves through the other. We need to really get to know the other understanding how they act and function. We also need to be willing to reveal ourselves to the other. This adventure is only possible through love. Love is what opens the doors to this metal revelation which unveils the great mystery of life.”
~ Sri Prem Baba

“Don’t waste your time with someone who only wants you around when it’s convenient for them. You shouldn’t have to force someone to make a space in their life for you, because if they truly care about you, they will gladly create space for you. Being in a relationship with someone who overlooks your worth isn’t loyalty, it’s stupidity. Never beg someone for attention. Know your self-worth, and move on if you must.”
~ unknown

“Sometimes the person you fall for isn’t ready to catch you.”
~ unknown

“When you love someone, you have to have trust and confidence. Love without trust is not yet love. Of course, first you have to have trust, respect, and confidence in yourself. Trust that you have a good and compassionate nature. You are part of the universe; you are made of stars. When you look at your loved one, you see that he is also made of stars and carries eternity inside. Looking in this way, we naturally feel reverence. True love cannot be without trust and respect for oneself and for the other person.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us…that we don’t feel brave or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.
~ Pema Chodron

“We cannot change people, we can only love them. Hopefully, we love hard enough that they want to do better, not for you, but for themselves.”
~ Alexelle

If you’re in a relationship, I invite you to ask yourself this question:
“Why am I choosing my partner today?” If you can’t find a satisfying answer, dig deeper and find one. It could be as simple as noticing that in your deepest heart’s truth, “I just do.” If you can’t find it today, ask yourself again tomorrow. We all have disconnected days.
But if too many days go by and you just can’t connect with why you’re choosing your partner, and your relationship is rife with stress, let them go. Create the opening for another human being to show up and see them with fresh eyes and a yearning heart that will enthusiastically choose them every day.”
~ Bryan Reeves

“Your soul, the home of the heart, knows what your mind doesn’t. If you are busy searching for love, you may have created a need, a longing for something that you think you’re missing, when the truth is that love is already there within you.
If you have done the inner work and are patient, then you’re ready to receive the gift. Your soul will hear the call and true love will find you.”
~ Daniel Nielsen

“Apologizing does not always mean that you’re wrong and the other person is right. It just means that you value your relationship more than your ego.”
~ unknown

“You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.”
~ Emery Allen

“Love is not just about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. It’s not about how much love you have in the beginning, but how much love you build until the end.”
~ Angel Chernoff

“The healing of our present roundedness may lie in recognizing and reclaiming the capacity we all have to heal each other, the enormous power in the simplest of human relationships: the strength of a touch, the blessing of forgiveness, the grace of someone else taking you just as you are and finding in you an unsuspected goodness.”
~ Rachel Naomi Remen

“Love isn’t when there are no fights in the relationship. Love is when once the fight ends, love is still there.”
~ unknown

“If you continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again. But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world. ”
~ Eckhart Tolle

“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”

“The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration. ”
~ Pearl S. Buck

“I choose to be alone cause I wanted to experience freedom, but I realized that freedom needs a companionship”
~ Ahmed Alibage

“Intimacy without commitment, like icing without cake, can be sweet, but it ends up making us sick.”

“Allow your relationship to progress at its own pace. Enjoy each moment of each date, the courtship, the friendship, and the natural progression to commitment. If it is meant to be, it will happen.”
~Pamela Cummins

“Connection is why we’re here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it, there is suffering.”
~ Brené Brown

” The healthiest relationships are the honest ones, the ones that might not always look ‘happy’ or ‘carefree’ from the outside. The ones that might not fit the image of what a relationship ‘should’ or ‘must’ look or feel like. Where two people tell the truth about today, and continually let go of all their preconceived ideas about each other. Where the relationship is forever renewed in the furnace of honesty. Where there may be ruptures, misunderstandings, even intense feelings of doubt and disconnection, BUT there is a mutual willingness to face this seeming mess head-on! To look – with open eyes – at the present rupture, and not turn away or cling to the past. To sit together in the midst of mutual shattered dreams and expectations, and work to find a place of reconnection, here, now, today.”
~ Jeff Foster

“What counts is what we are, and the way we deepen our relationship with the world and with others, a relationship can be one of both love for all that exists and of desire for its transformation.”

“Once a deep and powerful connection between two people has been made they become a vital part of each other’s lives and there is no separating them. No measure of distance or duration of silence can prevent the outbreak of smiles and laughter or the strong desire to leap into each other’s arms when they come together once more.”
~ Beau Taplin

“The people who are meant to be in your life will always gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wander.”
~ unknown

“The key to a successful relationship is to get your eyes off your partner’s flaws and what they need to do for you, and just focus on loving them unconditionally, as they are. When you let go of the need for your partner to change to suit your expectations and focus on doing your own inner work to become whole, you set love free to flow like an unobstructed river, creating the conditions for two souls to become one.” Understanding this will alleviate years of struggle and heartache.
~ Daniel Nielsen

“If you love hard, that’s what makes it worth it. You become one of those once in a lifetime types of people who forever marks the heart of another.”

“People come and go in your life, but the right ones will always stay.”

“Do yourself a favour and learn to walk away. When a connection starts to fade, learn how to let it go. When a person starts to mistreat you, learn how to move on…to something and someone better. Don’t waste your energy trying to force something that isn’t meant to be..because the truth is…for every one person who doesn’t value you – there are tons more waiting to love you better. Do better.”
~ unknown

“Why should a relationship mean settling down? Wait out for someone who won’t let life escape you, who’ll challenge you and drive you toward your dreams. Someone spontaneous you can get lost in the world with. A relationship, with the right person, is a release, not a restriction.”
~ Beau Taplin

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying ‘Soften the orange a bit on the right-hand corner.’ I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”
~ Carl Rogers

“The experience of immeasurable realities in far more important than we might imagine. The things we cannot measure may be the things that ultimately sustain our lives. Much recent medical research suggests that isolation makes us vulnerable to illness and that relationship furthers survival.”
~ Rachel Naomi Remen

“When you learn to look at someone with your inner eyes and love them for who they are, something remarkable happens. The flaws disappear. The outer person becomes even more beautiful and new desires arise in you. And your souls begin to merge like two streams coming together to form one river.
Soul-deep loving is for those who want more, those who are ready to let go of the familiar and surrender ego-self. It’s for couples that want to touch heaven with their pure love and their adoration for each other.”
~ Daniel Nielsen
