Have you ever been so involved in your relationship that you lost sight of what you really want? This can partially due to the ‘honeymoon phase’ of your union. Or, because you’re so in tune with what your lover wants that you’ve accepted their desires as your own. Before you get too lost in love, remember that it’s important to take a step back every once in a while and evaluate what it is that you want from your relationship.
There are moments in our lives that aren’t easy to comprehend. Like when relationships we thought we couldn’t live without suddenly become an afterthought. While a lifelong friendship can end abruptly, some just lose their steam – even when it’s not intended. But that doesn’t have to always be the case.
There are times in a relationship when your partner will struggle. This can be challenging… on both of you. Especially if you’re used to seeing them be strong. If something has unexpectedly has affected them in a way that has caused you concern, it might be time to get involved.
Don’t underestimate the importance of tribe. There’s something special about surrounding yourself with the right people… that want to see you happy and fulfilled. Being around people that don’t have your best interest at heart, can be incredibly stressful and abusive.
Ringing in a new year doesn’t mean that everything changes for the better. One key element to embracing a better more intentional way of living is to evaluate those closest to you, your friends. It’s time to get honest about who’s a part of your tribe and who’s holding you back from your best life!
