Relationships have been a big deal with me. I have not had much success. Until I met Parisha Taylor at a program. She talked about the fact that the most important relationship you have is the one with your self. If you don’t care for or love yourself, how can you love anyone else? I got it. My moods are mine and have nothing to do with my partner, but I certainly end up inflicting them on her. Because I am right in the middle of them in technicolor reality. Getting right with myself and with God, that is the first step to a fulfilling relationship. Now, I no longer seek for a person to fill in the holes of my emotional well being, but to complement and be stronger together. Real companionship.

For the first time in my life, I have begun to feel truly happy.
