You draw on this power to support their desires, worries and judgments. When you respect and nurture these qualities in yourself, you demonstrate your love and appreciation for your partner as they are, not as you wish they were.
Do you know how to give back, to return the good care you receive? The power of RECIPROCATION is the capacity to appreciate what your partner does for you and to show you appreciate it.
