What’s going on with your relationship? Are you thinking of calling it quits?
One of the main reasons relationships are failing is that single people are looking for someone to complete them. Many of us, look for a partner as a kind of life solution to our problems.
If my life is not going that well, the answer is to find another person to love and everything will work out. Nice try but wrong.
I overheard 4 young teenage women talking in loud excited voices about their boyfriends. All they could focus on was their boyfriends and when they would get married. There was no talk about their own life choices, their studies or career paths. It was as if their futures were entirely wrapped up in their male partners’ choices.
Relationships fail because people are coming from a place of lack and not from prosper.
How can you expect a relationship to blossom if each person is in it for what they can get out of it and not what they can contribute to it?
Good relationships aren’t built on neediness.
I don’t need you but I want you is a much better starting point for a flourishing relationship.
Before entering into a relationship you must be a whole person and by that I mean you must know yourself and love yourself. If you aren’t happy with yourself why would you want to inflict yourself on someone else?
What is there about you that you don’t like or refuse to accept?
Each partner in a troubled relationship needs to ask themselves Who am I? And what do I want in my own life?
If you find acceptance and happiness within yourself, then this will flow over into your relationship. When you learn greater self acceptance it becomes easier to accept others.
