Recognition. Relationships. Inhibition.
The weekend is upon us, and for some, the spirit of Valentine continues; love has very definitely been heavily in the air this month.

“How long have I loved you? Perhaps always…”
This weekend, you may finds yourself realizing uncomfortable truths about your love; is he terminally married? is she a serial cheat? is he unwilling to commit? is she already too clingy? What about you – are you authentic in your love? are you building intimacy or distraction? Flaws real or imagined, now is the time to ask yourself:

Make a list and check it twice! You must know what you want, what you can handle, where you can compromise, and where you stand. Love is not for the weak or meek; it destroys as much as it builds, and you must be ready to take it on or leave it be – there is no halfway point.
“Men! You can’t live without them, you can’t hit them with an axe.”
