When you first meet a partner, life feels wonderful; your relationship is effortless and it’s easy to expect that it will always be that way. However, as time goes on, difficulties and worries can begin to make your relationship feel like hard work.
The very first step on the path to a better relationship is to understand that our relationships are where we do our best “life learning”. They are the context in which we can become our wisest self.
Because every person has their own individual past, and their own way of viewing the world, it’s inevitable that a relationship will have friction and disharmony at times. This is perfectly normal. Learning to overcome those challenges can be an opportunity to grow as a person, and to become stronger as a couple.
Not just for today – but on into the future.
