Keys to building positive relationships and letting go of painful experiences
Have you ever wondered why relationships are so hard, and why they can feel so blissful in one moment and so frustrating in the next?
Have you ever asked yourself things like:
- Who am I and how did I get to be who I am?
- What do I truly want from life?
- Why isn't my life changing?
- Why aren't my partner, friends, children, or life changing?
- Why do I always get into arguments, especially with the people I love?
- Am I choosing the wrong people or is there something I should do differently?
Not to worry if these all sounds too familiar - you're not alone! We all have these feelings of wanting our life to be better and to have deep and meaningful relationships.
These include friendships as well as a close intimate relationship. This includes having people we truly care about and who care about us.
So, is love enough to make a relationship or friendship work? The answer here is no! You may sound surprised.
Love is only the beginning of seeing in someone else things that you may truly treasure.
For example, it may be the fact that they are kind, they work hard, they are good-looking, they like or love us and accept us. The qualities that each person finds in someone else to begin this love process is different. In order to find true love, it is important to first find a true friend.
But love is not enough to make a relationship work. You need to know how to make it work. And if you’re like most people, no one ever taught you about the important dynamics of love, friendships, and most likely nothing about intimacy.
When I began my marriage, now forty-three and a half years ago, little was I prepared for the roller-coaster ride that was about to begin. And a roller-coaster ride it has certainly been. However, I had these two things that gave me a foundation, I dearly loved my husband and I wanted to build a life with him.
