My thoughts on relationships based on a post I saw on Facebook:
Its a very interesting subject.
I am not at all sorry that mine is over. It served a beautiful purpose and was delightful for the first few years. It turned sour and both of us suffered by staying in it. I can't even put into words how glorious it feels to no longer be tied emotionally and energetically to that man. I wish him well. The day my divorce was finalized - as magically as that happened (took an hour and 10 minutes when it is "supposed" to take 61 days) - was one of the happiest days of my life.
Relationships are as multifaceted as the people in them.
Stuart Wilde used to say that relationships are for growth, not for life. I always disagreed with him until I was in my own situation that needed to end. I think it depends on the people and what they are intending.
All of my new teachings are about harmony and disharmony, empowerment and disempowerment.
Every relationship has its ups and downs, its highs and its lows, times when one partner has to give while the other receives, and then vice versa. But overall, if the relationship helps you soar, empowers you, makes you feel good about yourself, then it is well worth keeping, fighting for even.
If it causes ongoing pain, disharmony, constriction, conflict, keeps you small or disempowered in any way - then get out! By staying in a relationship like that, you are telling the Universe that you don't deserve better.
People need to be loved, accepted, and acknowledged for who they are and for their gifts. They need to give that to others.
Surround yourself with people like that. Teach it to your children. Thank your friends for being that way. Give that sort of love and support to those around you. Insist that you receive it from your spouse. If the people in your life cause you to be in constant chaos and confusion, they need to not be in your life.
You can't truly love, accept and appreciate another, until you can do it for yourself. Get my eBook Freeway to Freedom to heal your wounds of the past so you can give and receive the love you so deserve.
Have a deLightful day,
I would love to hear what you have to say about this subject!
