This is a big subject and it’s often “charged” for people. Only you can decide what is right for your situation. Honestly, this subject is intimidating for me to write about. Working directly with a couple or an individual is much different than writing for a group.
I’m going to start off by trying to answer some questions recently posted in comments that were in response to my post called “Stop Negative Thoughts.” Let’s see where that takes us.
How do you remain positive if your partner/spouse/significant other is not walking the same path?
As we mature spiritually our ability to accept others as they are actually grows. If lack of acceptance is the issue, I think we must look to ourselves for the answer.
It helps to have some clarity about what this relationship means to you, what you desire it to be. (a whole new subject? Comments are welcome)
Can you love your partner as they are? If your life has taken a new direction it can be frightening for them. We don’t often grow at the same pace or in the same way. Each person has his/her own karma and it’s important to respect that. One way to love another is to commit to seek and find the best in them. In my opinion, once we have committed to a life partnership it’s our duty to support the highest in the other, even when it’s very hard to locate! Just because you are changing, does this require your partner to change also?
More coming soon.
