This is a phrase that resonates very strongly with me.
I know what it feels like to be in a relationship where my needs are completely met; where I feel totally safe; secure and loved inside and out by a partner. I also know what it is like for that loving relationship to become one of anxiety and mistrust as my 1st marriage ended in 2003 after 17 years.
My relationship with Rob was based on complete trust and being loved by him made my world complete.
When he died my world eventually stopped turning. The man who had become the central figure in my life and also that of my children was gone. However tough things got for us with Rob’s health we always had the ability to laugh and inspired many by our positive attitude to life.
One of the nurses who wasn’t able to attend Rob’s funeral wrote to me expressing how he and I inspired her to see life in a different way and how love really does make the world go round.
We ALL need to feel loved and loving support remains a fundamental requirement to good health throughout the world.
I talk about like being like a garden and in recent years since Rob’s death I have realised that when someone dies they will ALWAYS be in your garden. They have merely gone to another part of it.
‘Do you have enough Loving Support in your life’?
