What reason do people have to lie to you? Why would someone not keep their word? Because honey, some people just talk to hear themselves talk. They will tell you what they think you want to hear because they have their own agenda. Making promises, whispering sweet nothings in your ear and that’s exactly what they plan to do, nothing! That’s why we can’t just listen, we have to look too. Their words need to be followed up with actions. They may be able to talk a good game, but how do they play?
People underestimate the power of presence. We get so caught up in what the next move is. Let’s go out to eat, catch a movie, go to a concert; all these things are great, but what about the times when you don’t want to do anything? When you would rather relax at home? Can you be around the person you’re dating with no distractions? Can you be content with just you, them, and conversation? That’s the type of relationship we should seek. Someone we can have discussions with and even be silent with and it brings joy. Because what’s going to happen when you grow older and all you have is each other?
