Written by Allie Ochs

Continued from page 1

Authenticity: True love only happens when you are real Have you ever found yourself laughing simply because everyone else did? Agreed with your partner’s opinion even though you didn’t share it or said: “I love you” when you didn’t mean it. Did you ever do something inconsistent with your true self just to please someone or to get what you wanted? Of course we all have. We have lostrepparttar bravery to be real! For many there is quite a gap betweenrepparttar 122056 inside andrepparttar 122057 person they present torepparttar 122058 world. How about Toni,repparttar 122059 dad who rents a Porsche to impress his date, while being delinquent in child support. Debby spends every Sunday at Grant’s parents but resents it. To keeprepparttar 122060 peace, she refrains from claiming some of these Sundays on her terms. To be validated we often compromise who we are. Conditioned by our environment we have become products ofrepparttar 122061 culture we live in. No matter how good we are at playing roles eventually our truth emerges. Being fit to love means being real. When we are authentic our relationships become real and we never have to doubt them. Regardless ofrepparttar 122062 state of our relationships or how unsuccessfully we have tried to find love we haverepparttar 122063 power to radically change today. Mutual respect, moral responsibility and authenticity are key to exceptional relationships. People in exceptional relationships are fit to love and inrepparttar 122064 process they reap some profound rewards: ·They live much happier lives ·They cope far better with stress ·They have better sex more often ·They laugh more often and have more fun ·They are healthier and live longer ·They are more optimistic ·They feel more secure and stable No wonder we envy these people. In times like these, laced with tremendous uncertainty their relationships are like rock-solid anchors. Mahatma Gandhi said: “A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it isrepparttar 122065 prerogative ofrepparttar 122066 brave”. Let’s be brave!
