Here are my current thoughts on relationships, including intimate ones:

🙂 My relationship with myself matters most of all

🙂 They are about finding out what love is, rather than just meeting my needs

🙂 All relationships have a lot in common: intimate, friends, family

🙂 For me, I want and need deep connections with people, as that is my nature

:Trust that you can get over what hurts you (you can recover). This makes life less frightening and your own life more of an adventure.
