Relationships (with ourselves and others)


Minimize dramatic people in your life. ~Jeff Palmer

Befriend only people with good energy that don’t promote or create drama. ~Carmen Portela

You get what you put out. If you act in a way that is positive and minimal drama, you attract the same kind of positive situations and people. ~April Myers

Drama usually comes from my reaction to other people’s actions. I stop to think: Does this really matter in the long run, or am I just trying to be right? ~Anita Grimm-Hohl

I realize that spending time by myself is always preferable to spending time with someone who wants drama. Nothing wrong with a dull day. ~Stephanie Goddard

Remove the source of drama from my life. It really is that simple. ~Claudia Jacobs

(Quotes above were taken from an article by Lori Deschene "7 Critical Steps to Removing Drama in Your Life"

The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness. -Neale Donald Walsch

f we are incapable of finding peace in ourselves, it is pointless to search elsewhere. -Francois de la Rochefoucauld

An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way, can we truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes. -Patricia Fry

When someone likes to control another and is emotionally abusive; it lasts with you for a very long time the scars are so damaging. Don’t ever let anyone treat you like you are nothing, because you are everything to someone else. They are just losing control of themselves so that is why they feel they have to control and abuse you verbally. Always know you do not need to have that kind of behavior in your life, walk away from it and you will feel so much better….♥♥ Unknown
