Relationship Reciprocity

Sweetest Devotion

“Growing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.” – Victoria Moran

Hook ’em

“All successful networking is dependent on two key things: reciprocity and curiosity.” – Phyllis Weiss Haserot

Co-creators

You Can Dance if You Want To

“Abundance is a dance with reciprocity – what we can give, what we can share, and what we receive in the process.” – Terry Tempest Williams

Miracle Tool

“Transparency is key to reciprocal accountability, which we use to be both free and smart. It is the miracle tool that enables us to question the lies of monsters.” – David Brin

Respect the Root

“Respect is at the root of love. Be still. Know that you don’t have to coax anyone to hold you in high regard. When love is intentional + authentic, there will be no anxiety about reciprocity. Connections meant for you won’t be second-guessed or filled with uncertainty. Free yourself from relationships that leave you feeling insignificant.” – Alex Elle

One Word

“Tse-Kung asked, ‘Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life?’ Confucius replied, ‘It is the word ‘shu’ – reciprocity. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.” – Doctrine of the Mean

Shared Power

“The characteristics of healthy boundaries include self-respect; non-tolerance of abuse or disrespect; responsibility for exploring and nurturing personal potential; two-way communication of wants, needs, and feelings; expectations of reciprocity; and sharing responsibility and power.” – Laurie Buchanan

Throbbing with Reciprocity

“The universe is a vast system of exchange. Every artery of it is in motion, throbbing with reciprocity, from the planet to the rotting leaf.” – Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Fair’s Fair

“I am loyal to those who are loyal to me. I support those who support me. If you don’t have time for me. Don’t be surprised if I don’t have time for you. I treat myself fairly.” – Akiroq Brost
