The quality of your relationship with another cannot exceed the quality of your relationship with yourself. If you’re having trouble relating to someone else, first heal you. Create a great relationship with yourself.
The facets of how you relate to you are reflected by those you call partner, ex-partner, friend, enemy, and family.
The way you treat others is a reflection of the way you treat yourself.
The bugaboo in most relationships is: we think if our partner would change, our life would be better.
Any problem between two people can strengthen the relationship. What couples don’t know, not really, not in their bones, is that challenges help us become us.
One person can transform a relationship.
Make changes for you. Changing for the sake of others is not enjoyable, healthy, or sustainable.
Being critical never helped us love another, or ourselves, not even once. You cannot condemn yourself or another person and be centered in who you are.
Before you break up as a couple, break up your patterns and see how this influences your relationship.
Ideally, don’t cling to a mistake because you spent a lot of time making it.
When you feel the sun rising in your heart—go that way. Your happiness and well-being are vital to your health, and to the health of your relationship.
Let me fall if I must. The one I will become will catch me.
