The key to achieving harmony in a relationship begins with one's relationship with self. This opens the door for new life skills development, including each participant's deeper understanding of values and personal choices. Some important choices are:
How do I want to be included in this relationship?
Can I express this openly without the misunderstanding of blame or conflict?
What is the healthy amount of compromise, not too much or too little?
Am I able to ask for change with an attitude of hope?
How would I feel if I were in the other person's shoes?
The goal is the co-creation of harmonious understanding between individuals. The influence of past stressors in each individual's live will confuse a relationship, but these can be resolved in a step by step effort. Not every relationship is 'meant to be,' but a peaceful understanding is possible regardless of the outcome.
