Clients unhappiness

I have been fortunate enough to meet some truly wonderful friends through my time in London. Some of whom touch my life in the most magical way. But it saddens me that a large number of these friends are struggling with problems within their relationships which lead them sort out my companionship for a few moments of happiness. It saddens me to know that when they leave they shall be returning to their problems. I'm not saying I would want them walk away from them & spend their lives with me, but I would like them to be happy. I know I am not a solution for them but I offer them a few moments of escape. I can't solve their problems, I can offer a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen to them & a warm embrace which they often lack in their lives. Maybe it's the fact I am someone neutral which allows them to open up to me & express their feelings to. Maybe it's the fact that they don't have to pretend to be someone their not. Maybe it's the intimacy that we share. Or maybe it's something else entirely. But I like to think that I touch their lives as they have done mine. We are all responsible for our own happiness. Sometimes we share our happiness with people that are close to us, or people that we meet for a brief moment in time. And it's those moments that stay with us. A friend I met a few years ago shared a very liberating & interesting point with me. He had been married for a number of years & truly loved his wife, however the relationship had changed & it was no longer as passionate as it was in the early days. However, he said that he & his wife had accepted the fact that marriage/relationships do change over time. It doesn't mean you don't love each other anymore, but you become companions through life rather than just lovers. You care for each other in the deepest way possible & although you may not be as intimate as you once were it doesn't take away the fact that you are a couple. Two halves making a whole. And it's the acceptance of this that means you can be happy & content with what you have. Even if that means seeking a few moments of intimacy from elsewhere. So my advice to anyone who cares to listen is: Change the things you can't accept & accept the things you can't change. And with that, I shall leave you until next time. Xxx
