Have you ever been in a place with a relationship where you felt like you were constantly in the thick of a storm and no matter how hard you tried you were still there? You have tried pushing, changing, accepting, allowing, to the point of exhaustion, but the storm is not subsiding. I urge you to stop. Right now. Close your eyes, take deep breaths and find that calm in the eye of the storm for just a moment. Just so you know that it is there.
When you feel like this it is often because you are right on the edge of falling into a whole new life. Falling can feel scary, unsafe, unsure and not at all comfortable. This is why we always remind you that tiny shifts over time will take you where you want to go. Sometimes grand changes are called for, but most of the time it is a small movement like adjusting the dial of the radio ever so slightly and suddenly everything is clear.
Transition your relationship into what it can be right now, instead of holding tight to what it used to be, what it could be or what you wish it was. You’ve got this! And we’ve got you! (image by HeartArt)
