In this second episode of Christine – a new YouTube series I started blogging about yesterday – she meets a man with whom she starts to develop a very quick connection, that is, until an unexpected medical condition begins to show up right in the middle of the 5 minute speed date.
To find out what that medical condition is, you’d have to watch the episode!
It will do you good!
When I first saw this episode, what came up for me was remembering a time in my life when I dated a man who, about 6 months into our relationship, I discovered he was HIV positive. Though highly concerned for both his and my health, and doing my best to be as loving and supportive as I could, I remember I made the decision that his medical condition was not going to break us up. I remember saying, “we can break up because we don’t love each other anymore, or if this isn’t working out for us, but we’re not breaking up because you’re HIV positive.”
In the end, it didn’t work out.
Within 3 months we split. It was what he wanted. Somehow he felt it was the best for both of us. For me it was a very painful experience to go through, one that in many ways brought me closer to God, and to taking even greater responsibility for my own life.
It’s pretty amazing how watching any video on YouTube can bring up memories like that, isn’t it? The way I feel about the situation that this episode brings up is that, when there’s TRUE LOVE in any relationship, that willingness to extend yourself for yours and others spiritual, emotional, and physical well being, most people will stay with a partner despite any medical condition they have. As long as there’s LOVE, and both partners learn to communicate their thoughts, feelings, emotions, needs and wants, MIRACLES of healing and transformation can take place in ANY relationship.
Learning to know what is going on for you emotionally, mentally, and physically and communicating that to others so that you can get what you want, is a great part of what I teach people in my Heart Intelligence Coaching Program. It is a skill you develop over time, and a pre-requisite for anyone who wants to live their lives fully from their heart. I call this lifestyle, “living with your HEART ON”.
What about you? Would you date someone with a medical condition? Would that be a deal breaker for you? Would you date someone who is HIV positive if you’re HIV negative? Let me know what you think by posting a comment below.
