The most important experiences of our lives are formed by our relationships. Relationships help your bodies and souls as we learn our life lessons. We see ourselves in the mirrored reflection of other people. Relationships teach us how to love and forgive. These are important life lessons. There are some simple ways to make your relationships pass a little more peacefully.
Don’t expect your relationships to make you feel fulfilled. Figure out what you are missing and fix that first. If you have unfinished business and pain from your childhood, do what you can to fix that first so you can work on closing the emptiness. You can do this by taking some time for yourself. Spend time alone and give yourself what you want from others.
Don’t blame or judge
Do you like to be criticized? How about judged? The answer is probably “no. Before you start with the complaining and accusations, ask yourself why you are reacting that way? It is your feelings? Why are you striking out at someone else. Think about the lesson you could be learning from your feelings. Try and understand why you are feeling the way you are. Your feelings are a way for you to grow.
Honesty is the best policy
If you want a true and lasting relationship, you have to be honest with your partner. Don’t be afraid to tell them what you feel and think. Don’t try to manipulate them with your words. Don’t hold back because you are afraid. You can be honest and respectful. Not only will this help you feel satisfied, it will help your partner will be honest with you.
Live in the moment
Life changes constantly. There is no such thing as permanence. Life and all of it’s forms are in a constant cycle. If we are truly to enjoy our lives, we need to allow ourselves to enjoy the moment to moment nature. There is no permanence so let your baggage go and enjoy your life.
