We are all seeds that became trees in time and we keep growing in more majestic, wise and powerful trees every day. We cannot stop is and we probably wouldn't if we could.
Life shapes our branches with all experiences that cross our path and all the reaction that we choose to have.
When you share your life path with a partner, your tree start to grow branches intertwined with the branches of your loved one and if you have children the seeds that your children come from will grow not far from you and supported by your presence.
When all this happens, your growth and the growth of your partner starts to influence each other, to stimulate each other, to support each other and possibly, in certain ways, to challenge each other.
Trees grow over time and they change in shape, add rings, grow taller, maybe choose a new direction for some branches.
It is so important that the mutual love keeps growing aware and respectful of the development of both trees in the relationship.
It is difficult to grow without letting the other know and it is also a misunderstanding that you can experience soothing within a couple without the other being influence, affected or challenged.
This doesn't mean that there are limitation to your growth, this means that there is a responsibility to each other to keep up to date to the development of the tree growing next to you.
Curiosity for your lover's tree and its process and openness about your tree and its adventures in the world. This is an important key to keep growing healthy in a intimate relationship. Allowing the relationship to grow and change with the people in it.
