Every person we come into contact with provides us with an opportunity to learn, grow, and expand. A wise woman once said to me, the character of your life is made up of the five people you spend the most time with. This being true, what are our relationships providing for us in life?
A healthy relationship is not concerning having the same life as your beloved partner; it is not a love where you consume each other and rely on each other for existence as well as a healthy well-being. So what is a healthy relationship? A healthy relationship is one where you both SHARE your life together. Individually you are strong, wonderful people and together you shine even brighter. A healthy relationship can change your whole lifestyle. On the other hand, an unhealthy relationship can destroy your life rudely!
For our experience together today
Reflect on your relationships.
What are three relationships you have that provide space and support for your personal growth and expansion?
What are three relationships that seem to challenge you the most?
In both cases ask yourself:
√ What is my role in the relationship?
√ What do I provide or offer?
√ What is provided or offered to me?
√ Is there a balance in the energy exchange?
— If not, where is the imbalance?
— Are there healthy boundaries in place?
— Do I have realistic expectations?
— Am I looking for needs to be met from another that I can meet for myself?
— How can my attitude, thoughts, actions, and choices determine the flow and quality of the relationship?
Take some time to think about the people in your life that have the biggest impact on you. Have an open and honest conversation with yourself about these relationships. Honor what comes up and give yourself permission to receive love where it is offered and conversely, to let go of what is no longer supporting you. Be thankful for them all. We wouldn’t be here today, in this new place of discovery without the aid of the people in our lives who support us and challenge us.
Keep an open mind, a soft heart, and a willing hand.
