Relationship Advice

At one point in your life you’ve probably wanted, gave, or heard relationship advice. Its a messy topic, “relationship” is even a complicated word, with many meanings, perhaps even some value/moral implications strung in there as well.
It was suggested to me to write an entry on cheating, expectations and boundary settings in relationships today. Although those are valid topics to be concerned about, using the forum of a blog to discuss such personal concerns, feels devaluing or impersonal to me.
What I’d suggest that anyone do, is remember that we have feelings in our body for a reason, they are trying to tell us something, and if we use our reasonable mind too much to think our way out of the emotion… Well thats not practicing wise mind. Emotions are only in life to make you stronger. Don’t waste those messages, use them to your advantage.
