There is no question about it: long term relationships have a natural ebb and flow. In those ebb times, the distance between you and your partner can feel so vast that you find yourself asking, ”Should I stay or should I go?”
Talk about two exhausting extremes! Both the part saying “stay” and the other part saying “leave” are confident it is right and the other is wrong. To make matters worse, you cannot build a quality relationship with your partner while a part of you debates whether or not the effort is worth it.
This dismal dilemma can eat up all your happiness and calm. Luckily, you can become clear when you notice you are going back and forth between two different polarities.
During today’s podcast I want to give you another way to look at your situation, so you can take charge of yourself and consciously decide to show up in one side of the polarity with your eyes wide open. I’ll also provide you with:
- 5 basic ingredients of long-term relationships
- 6 ways to support yourself during this time
- 4 tools to help you choose different behaviors in your relationship
Even if things are hard right now, it is completely possible to pop out of your dilemma and enjoy life. By watching your life from this calmer, chosen place, you will have a better understanding of who you are, what you need, and how to make it happen for yourself.
