Love is available in ourselves when we choose it, and choosing love in ourselves brings more love into our relationships. Yes, all relationships shift and change, and at the same time, love can regenerate again and again in the most mysterious moments and forms if we stay open and curious. The co-creative journey of intimate relationships is a fundamental part of our human well-being. You are lovable."
