#2 Feelings of worth can only flourish… in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family. Virginia Satir Virginia Satir
#3 Quick passion killer Abandon yourself Become predictable Give up learning Discard discovery
New love is inherently passionate #4 Dedicated to discovery Alive and open to new experiences
#5 But from the beginning we begin to mold each other… “You won’t believe how alike we are!”
#6 When you “already know me…” It’s easier to ignore me.
#7 It is not our differences that divide us… It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. Audre Lorde
