25 Relationship Quotes To Inspire Intimacy And Love

Relationship Quotes

Your love relationship is the most important relationship you will ever have. Do you agree?

It is in this intimate relationship (or marriage) that we have the opportunity to grow and evolve into the person we want to be. This is especially so when you and your partner treat one another with tenderness, respect, and admiration.

Within this relationship, you can heal past wounds, comfortably be your true self, and stretch yourself without fear of failure or judgment.

However, if you and your partner are more self-focused than you are attentive to the relationship and one another, your closeness and joy will begin to wither. Your connection can devolve into defensiveness, frustration, stonewalling, and hurt feelings.

It takes effort to maintain your relationship in order to keep it healthy and happy. You have to tend to it as you would a prized garden -- pull the weeds, water it daily, and give it plenty of sunshine.
