I would validate their thoughts and feelings
I would cherish every moment with them, good or bad
I would do my best to make their life easier and joyous
I would show them the utmost respect for just being alive
I would show them how grateful I am to have them in my life
I would love and nurture them
I would support their endeavors
I would help them reach their full potential
I would constantly build them up, reminding them of how wonderful they are
I would make them soup when they are sick
I would hold them when they cried
I would massage them when they are sore
I will stand up for them
...all of these things that I would do for another....I don't even do them for myself...it is my intention now to treat myself as well as I would treat a lover....All of these things I will do for myself......because I am whole unto myself...
