In Love, I Want Wings to Fly and Roots to Grow
In any relationship we must try to create an adequate balance between what’s mine and what’s yours, be it a romantic relationship, one with your children, or even in a friendship.
It seems like a pretty complex process. But in reality, the magic of every healthy and integral human relationship is based on respect and providing the best for the other person, while at the same time taking care of ourselves.
Offering wings for them to fly is to allow that loved one to choose their own spaces, cultivate their hobbies and develop themselves every day in order to reach their personal fulfillment. If that person is happy with themselves, they will pass that positive energy on to you. We create together, respecting each other’s spaces and necessities, while we also take root.
Taking root in our relationships in no way means to “master” or “control.” To nurture our roots is to cultivate daily affection, respect and love to create a single unit. This is what unites us, it’s the roots that we created together and which, in turn, help us grow to be two souls within one body.
