Stephen R. Covey
“My wife and I just don't have the same feelings for each other we used to have. I guess I just don't love her anymore and she doesn't love me. What can i do?"
"The feeling isn't there anymore?" I asked.
"That's right," he reaffirmed. "And we have three children we're really concerned about. What do you suggest?"
"love her," I replied.
"I told you, the feeling just isn't there anymore."
"Love her."
"You don't understand. the feeling of love just isn't there."
"Then love her. If the feeling isn't there, that's a good reason to love her."
"But how do you love when you don't love?"
"My friend , love is a verb. Love - the feeling - is a fruit of love, the verb. So love her. Serve her. Sacrifice. Listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her. Are you willing to do that?”

Shannon L. Alder
“Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you. However, if it taught you to hold onto grudges, seek revenge, not forgive or show compassion, to categorize people as good or bad, to distrust and be guarded with your feelings then you didn’t learn a thing. God doesn’t bring you lessons to close your heart. He brings you lessons to open it, by developing compassion, learning to listen, seeking to understand instead of speculating, practicing empathy and developing conflict resolution through communication. If he brought you perfect people, how would you ever learn to spiritually evolve?”
Shannon L. Alder

“When you are feeling stressed, and you keep going over and over the same problem in your mind, with no solution, take action. Do anything to remove your energy from the issue.

Free yourself from feeling like a victim and become victorious instead!”

Kate McGahan
“It's never too late for love. If you're in a relationship that doesn't satisfy, start asking for what you want and need and just give them more love. Over time they will, they must, respond in one of two important ways. (1) They will leave you for they cannot rise to your higher call for love or (2) They will surprise! They will rise to your higher call. Either way you win. You get another chance to get it right.”
Kate McGahan

And have we ever considered that we might be in the wilderness because we’ve confused the two?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough
