Eternal / Unconditional Love

Eternal / Unconditional love, a forever home, a soul connection. We all want it and yet so few of us find it.

In order to make a relationship last, you really have to flow with a person as they change. We are not the same as we were ten years ago and we are constantly changing. There a choices and changes that happen all the time, and some of us might say that we have grown, while others may choose to stay in their comfort zone of the familiar and the known. This can become difficult within a relationship, and even cause separation when we don’t see eye to eye anymore.

How do we make it work?

Give them space. I recently heard of a couple that was together 60 years before she passed. Her husband said that throughout their time together his wife had changed so much that it felt like he had been with eight different people by the end. But he also said that the secret to making it last was that throughout all these changes, he never suffocated his wife with his own idea of who he expected her to be.

Rather he loved, fully, every woman she became. ❤️

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Beautiful story, Rhapsody 😀
    In the real world, this might be more challenging, as each of us are less independent of each other than ever before and therefor don’t give up our own life to please another person or just to get peace. Earlier times were different. Divorces were rare and people had minding to stay together for lifetime. Today I think, that egoism is the first hurdle.
    Much love to you ❤

    1. You are so right and luckily I think I have my ego in check. I am a simple person who doesn’t require much and I believe we become rich in many other ways.
      I have so many decisions to make in the near future. It is kind of overwhelming. I know it is only so because I wish I could see it all unfolded already. I have to be patient.
      Much love to you my dear friend

      1. Thank you, dear friend. With so much in your head, I wish you all good luck with your projects. I have prepared a surprise for you, as I will send this week to your address in US, as I was unsure about the one in Germany. You wrote, that you were on the way there this week. Take good care of yourself ❤

  2. This is so very true and beautiful and meaningful! Sometimes we also pick people who maybe where not truly ment for us or where ment at one time but didnt have all our best interests at heart…call me crazy I do believe there are soul mates whom connect on levels that would support all you said in your post. Its following your heart and believing in that connection! ❤😘

    1. Call me crazy too and the hopeless romantic who believes in these things. You are so right and we can only try to do our best at any given time. Later with more experience we might do it a whole lot different but remembering that we did the best we could, choosing the one we believed in then, is all we can truly do.
      Hugs

  3. So beautifully said Rhapsody. They are the mirror of our lives those lovely partners, whether good or bad, reflecting back what we have become. The closer to unconditional love (fearless), the less those fears are reflected back to us. The more unconditionally loving (loving ourselves), the more that love is reflected back.
    May your unconditional ever work fearlessly ❤️
