    About The Importance Of Respect „We are not

    Cain, Lord. We have not slain our brother. But our words are often sharp as a knife. We are not Cain, Lord. We have not thrown a stone against others. But in our thoughts we haven given them up and with our glances we have humiliated and demeaned them. We are not Cain, Lord...

    Trust

    When a relationship is started, there should be mutual understanding and trust. That is the essence. A man and woman should have mutual respect and trust. They have to understand the other. Many relationships are broken because of misunderstandings and loss of trust.

    and trust? There will a whole lot of discord because every time you leave their presence, it stresses them to think of you cheating, or anything that isn't right. without respect or trust you have nothing.

    "I Believe A Relationship Is Built On Respect And Trust"

    Yes most definitely if there is no trust, no respect your relationship will go down the drain soon or later. I'm sure that most of you enjoy the first few months when a relationship begins because every thing is rosy colored, and you try not to make your partner uncomfortable...

    I believe in this with all my heart.

    It takes time to built a relationship with somebody you want to be with. To me who you are with doesn't matter as long as you are happy. Sex would be nice but I want to meet somebody who lives me for me. That means with my good qualities and my faults. Accepting my common...

    Very Important.

    Respect, trust and honesty is what any relationship should be based on. It doesn't matter even if it's just a friendship, it still applies, but even more so for romantic relationships.

    I personally believe any kind of relationship

    is always built on a minimum of respect and trust. If these two and other ingredients are not in place then you have a phony relationship with someone. You may want to rethink your priorities and value system in your relationship with another person.

    Too often we seek to satisfy before we think, and we give before we can be given to. Such is a woman's life! We are very much goddesses, as the kabbalists might say, because we are selfless most of our natural existence, giving as lovers, giving as mothers, giving as crones, and...
