Strengthening Your Important Relationships
Sometimes it seems that the relationships that matter most to us are often the most neglected. We trust that those closest to us will understand when we are busy and distracted by other things. We also allow our relationships – whether with a spouse or partner, another family member, or a friend – to fall into a rut, sustained by mindless habits and patterns that starve rather than feed the relationship. In the end, not only does the relationship suffer, but so, too, does our own personal growth and fulfillment. Empower yourself and your relationships by releasing yourself from the fears, habits, expectations, “shoulds,” and relationship myths that limit our freedom. This, in turn, will support your movement in a new direction beyond your known limits to a vibrant place of growth and renewal in your most important relationships.
