8. Relationship problems can be a catalyst for profound personal growth.
If you listen, you will quickly discover that life’s powerful lessons are taught within our relationships. With those closest to us.
I’ll leave you with a quote that profoundly continues to touch me and my relationship.
“Romantic love requires courage – the courage to stay vulnerable, to stay open to our feelings to our partner, even when we are temporarily in conflict, even when we are frustrated, hurt, angry – the courage to remain connected with our love, rather than shutting down emotionally, even when it is terribly difficult to do so.
“When a couple lacks this courage and seeks ‘safety’ from pain in the refuge of withdrawal, as so commonly happens, it is not romantic love that has failed them but they who have failed romantic love.” – Nathaniel Branden.
Dedicated to your personal growth in love.
