Fear of losing him completely!
Love Notes:
Dear Joe,
Just call me Mishy, a college junior with a boyfriend named Earl. We've beentogether for almost a year now, and I have nothing more to ask for. But astime went by, a certain fear came over me. I'm afraid I might lose him ifsomeone better comes along. I can't think of anything else. When he's notwith me, I'm afraid that he might seeing someone else. We've been fighting alot lately. I've been getting jealous of every girl he talks to. It has cometo a point that we're already hurting hurting each other. I don't wantanyone to come between us. I love Earl so much but I can't stand the endlessfighting. I dont know what to think. Am I just being too paranoid? Should Ibelieve his assurance that he'll never ever leave me? I've made so manysacrifices for him and I want to be with him for the rest of my life. Pleasehelp me, Joe. I really don't know how to deal with it. I hope that my fearof losing him will completely dissapear.
Dear Mishy,
It is completely normal to feel a certain amount of fear at the thought oflosing the people we love and the people whom we know love us. I believethat it is this fear that constantly reminds us of our responsibility tocontribute to the wellness of our relationships. Complacency becomes evidentwhen we become so comfortable with our partners to the point of taking themfor granted. Without the fear of losing them, we become catalysts for thedestruction of our own relationships.However, there is the downside of letting this fear go beyond the bounds ofreason. Paranoia breeds mistrust that poisons healthy relationships. Lettingthis fear take over your mind and create pictures of infidelity pushes ourprotectiveness to a level that becomes uncomfortable for our partners.Outrageous feats of jealousy that go beyond sensibility can become veryannoying and destructive as well.Mishy, love alone cannot guarantee forever. You have to trust Earl. And youhave to be complete to do that. In love, two halves do not make a whole.Only two complete individuals can make a whole. You have to resist themistrust and jealousy that slowly erode the foundation of your relationship.Trust and respect are very important. And even if one fails in giving these,the other should be ready to forgive. This is the cycle of love, hurting,getting hurt, forgiving and starting again. Every time we go through this webecome stronger persons. We become more equipped to face the challenges inour relationships.Mishy, there are a lot of times when our feelings don't think. When ouremotions get too strong, we should stop for a while and let reason guide ouractions. Let Earl know that you trust him. He needs that. Don't let yourimagination go beyond what your eyes can see. Fear not that you will losehis love; but fear that you may be the one to push him out of love.
Faith is not believing that God can. It is knowing that God will.

Our Astrological Sun Sign
ABOUT HIM! (April 19)

ARIES, the Ram, is the very first sign of the zodiac. As such, it is bursting with energy that simply cannot be contained. Confident, enthusiastic, and independent, persons born under the sign of Aries are prone to rush impulsively into situations... and get out before the hard work starts! You are pioneers rather than settlers. While you enjoy rigorous physical or engaging social activities, you don't stay for long. Your inquisitive nature propels you hastily onward to your next adventure.
You often said to be headstrong and competitive. You delight in a good fracas, perhaps because your personality is partially shaped by the ruling planet Mars, named for the fearless god of war. You are quick to anger but even quicker to cool off, and your rebelliousness is often equated with courage, passion, and spontaneity.
More comfortable leading than following, you tend to resent those in authority, through you make a good executive yourself. You seek to investigate the unknown and are often impatient with those who lag behind.
Aries is sometimes viewed as the charismatic adolescent of the zodiac. People born under many of the calmer signs will simply stand back in awe at the fiery ways of your take-no-prisoners personality.
ABOUT HER (August 9)
LEO, the Lion, is the one and only King of the Zodiac. Ruled by none other than the Sun, Leo has a bright and fiery persona. You are a natural, willful leader... and you display considerable impatience toward those who fail to recognize your royal status.
For all your Leonine antics, you tend to be easily wounded. Your emotions are fragile, and even the weakest opponent can hurt you (and your pride) very deeply. When this happens, you roar! This display of power brings you the attention you crave, which soothes you. Bursting with creative fire, Leos make brilliant actors, in life as well as onstage.
The Lion's passionate nature means you are prone to fall easily in -- and out of --love. You tend to be as protective in your love life as you are spontaneous and dramatic. This is a confusing combination, and you are sometimes accused of insensitivity and testiness. However, your healthy self-image is soon restored, assisted by your well-developed sense of humor.
Leos, beware: You have the capacity to be either a caring guardian to you "subjects"... or a self-centered megalomaniac! You must contain your fire and let it kindle a desire for deep, mystical enlightenment. Then you will achieve the brilliance that is your astrological birthright.
(from the book: "What your birthdate reveals about you")
