This session is for deeply looking at your relationship with someone in your life - as it is. For going beneath the idea of who they are and considering all the realness.  This is about accepting this person for who they are at this moment in time - entirely - in order to set yourself free for a more meaningful connection!

This was an amazing checkup
This helped me check in and take stock of a long distance relationship no how I had been feeling lately about it. Highly recommended.

This session made me feel strangely vulnerable and forced me to put effort into understanding the current realities of my relationships and what could be. A thought provoking moment of reflection.

Unacceptable
By examining my relationship with my nurse- I physically felt tightness in my body and heat in my face. I find her demands, expectations, and intolerance unacceptable. Yet my own demands on myself, and my own expectations lead me to be cruel vs honest and I become intolerant and reject myself

It is extremely hard to be accepting when you are not accepted
However i am planning to start by changing myself, so the hard thing, be accepting as much as i can and little more, and have faith that somehow it even be for the better...

Love Everlasting
Though my Mom has passed on, there is little change in our relationship. The conversation continues. Really never thought of saying goodbye. Knowing her love is everlasting!

Acceptance
I really like this meditation. I am a sufferer of GAD and because of my disorder it takes a big toll on my relationship. In a way, this meditation help reminds me why I am with my partner. Accepting them as whole.

Difficulty Accepting
I found this extremely challenging. I came away feeling annoyed and upset. I guess I am looking for a quick fix for my relationship to the relationship I chose... I'll keep practicing. Commenting helped :)

Accepting others as they are
Just how I am learning to accept myself as I am, I will work on accepting others as they are.

Come as you are
People are allowed to come as they are into my life, and I am allowed to do the same.

Letting go
I have difficulty letting go of relationships and accepting change. I struggle with the fact that life goes on even if I'm not ready to.

Acceptance
After a friend died suddenly, then Las Vegas, this really helped me focus on my wife, fully accept all that she is, and renew my deep appreciation for what she means to me and our son.

Day 5
The man I love is different than me. He is experiencing something that I cannot understand. I am thankful that he did his best to communicate with me even when I was not in a place where I wanted to hear it. I respect his self preservation and I hope to achieve the same level of self love in the future.

Every Move I Make Is The Wrong One
All of my actions are driven by what's going on in my own life and have not taken into consideration what is going on in his.

Letting go
I learned that letting go isn’t a bad thing. I visualised my boyfriend whom I had recently split with, I realised there was more bad than good in the relationship and it was best to let him go.

The people who truly love and accept you would want you to accept yourself too.
When I was picturing a person that I care about in my mind, I remembered all the good times we had and how we helped each other through a lot. It reminded me that I am a good person to them and they’re a wonderful person to me and the idea of people looking out and caring for reach other is hella great. I remembered that even through my flaws and imperfections and deep regrets, I still have people that care about me a lot and they’re the ones that matter. They accept me for who I am and I should start accepting myself too.

It’s okay.
During this meditation I learned that in order for me to be okay I have to accept that it’s time to let myself be just that. I try so hard to be independent and there’s nothing wrong with that but once you find someone who wants to help you and be there for you, you need to allow them too. Let your guard down and let someone care for you the way you care for everyone else. It’s okay to be taken care of sometimes.

Relationship
We both have our own struggles and do the best we can, but we don’t do it perfectly and make mistakes, we still love each other but it is still a challenge to not drive each other crazy.

You have to accept the good and the bad in yourself just as you accept the good and bad in others. It’s hard to accept the not so good things about myself but each day I’m meditating in hopes of getting better at this.

Turn off
The only relationship in my life that has moved from love to love to cold has become frozen in my mind and lost to me from fantastic illusions

He is Enough
I think one of the greatest pitfalls in our relationship (truly, we have few, and I am grateful) is my unnecessary dissatisfaction when small things don’t go as planned. Him simply wanting to be with me and upholding our relationship should be enough. He alone is enough. Exterior circumstances don’t matter.

True love
I feel that truly loving someone means accepting them for who they are as they do for you, and with that mutual understanding we can grow.

I accept him
Although he has many imperfections, I love him entirely. No matter how far away I am from him, I can always count on him to be here for me. He is human and I cannot shame him for the way he feels about certain things. I can only learn through listening and self reflection. I accept him entirely.

Miss him
I learned that I’m gunna miss him. I’m going to miss the bond we use to have. I’m going to miss the way he moved my hair out my face, and caressed my body. I’m gunna miss the special treatments. I’m going to miss him opening up to me. I’m going miss our bathroom moments and our little secrets. I’m going to miss feeling wanted no matter what. I’m going miss feeling beautiful and special to someone. I’m going to miss all of that so much. Especially from him. I wanted it to be from him. But it’s not going to be that way. I will wipe my own tears right now as I type this and look forward to our new memories as friends. He is who he is and feels the way he feels. I can’t hold on to it anymore.

Acceptance
It has been so hard to accept that the relationship is over. Although, it was mostly toxic, there were wonderful times & those times burn in my mind. I love that person so much, and grew so close, so comfortable.. now that it’s over.. I feel so empty. I know it’s better for both of us because we weren’t ready to be in a HEALTHY relationship. However, moving on and accepting has been very rough.. but I guess time heals all right? 🥀

I need to accept him fully, he may have imperfections but that is every one and that makes us, us. I truly love him even in our most difficult times.

Day 1,
I learned that my relationship with nick is flawed in more ways than one but i should not focus on that but i should do what’s best for me in the relationship.

Mabra
I have noticed that I need to let her go if she’s not blooming.
I learned that I need to let us both find ourself and give here time till she wants to let me in. That I can’t be with her if she can’t let me in past her walls and under her skin, bones and flesh. I need to be appreciate fully, even with my flaws.

Letting Go
I struggle so much with letting go, with allowing things to sit at the level that they need. But this was helpful. Ive asked for help these last few weeks in letting go of C. Its what she asked for and I know its what we both need. Its hard for me to let go because I dont want to give up on the people that I love. But at the same time I dont want to hold onto them to block them or myself from our true paths. But i am learning to accept that sometimes the path means letting go.

Anxiety and religion
R doesn’t untilize a faith base like me and I need to accept that that’s ok. If that’s our only “difference”, I need to think positively and embrace all other parts of this amazing relationship.

New
It is difficult, accepting this new form of our relationship. A new you, without me. I struggle against it—feeling the loss of what was. Of what could have been. I need to accept you as you are now, I need to accept our relationship as it is.

Acceptance
Im at this point where I want to give up on him. We were on a complicated circumstance. But this made remember the promise i made to him. Its never going to be easy, but it will always be worth it if it s for us and for him.

I too am very conflicted. I want to have changes in my relationship but recognize he doesn’t want or need change. He seems ok with where things are centered

Acceptance in relationship
We all have someone special in our lives. This meditation celebrates that person. Accepting them just as they are. Loving them just as they are. Grateful for them being a part of your life just as they are.

Acceptance in relationship
I had a particular person in mind when I chose this meditation, but changed to another one as it started. By the end, I realized it is perfect for all relationships. I did a training in the ‘80s where I learned: Loving is loving a person for what they are and what they are not. I seem to have forgotten that and this reminder comes at a perfect time. Thank you again, Lauren!

Seeing the good in people & accepting our relationships as they are
This session was especially wonderful because accepting the people in our lives and our relationships with them is so essential to feeling at peace and fulfilled. We can’t change the imperfections, but we can see all the wonderful good in them and focus on that.

I learned to completely accept the person as they are. Unfortunately this was too whispered and didn’t let me meditate as I had to struggle to listen.

Accepting who I care about
The meditation helped me to visualize myself with the one I care about and allowing myself to be in that comfortable light place as I’ve learned from other meditation. I can let go freely of what I don’t accept about them

I’ve learned that you never know who is really there because they care or because they need you at that time . I have a hard time trusting
