Relationships and Love
Relationships and love...
Mainstream media portrays love as a codependent need for each other.
Contrary to popular belief, I think we should think of a relationship as a shared vessel that two individuals are contributing in to. The relationship becomes a third entity from the two people.
The more goodness you create in yourself, the more goodness you can provide to that vessel.
It's important to maintain your individual well-being so that you can nurture the relationship and continue to provide. If you aren't maintaining personal wellbeing, then you begin to take away goodness from this vessel.
In a relationship, everyone is personally responsible for their own well being. No one can save another person.
