Often I talk with couple, struggling to build their relationship.
The most arguments come from financial difficulties and stress but in the past 12 months there has been a surge of friendships almost taking place of relationships. Now you may ask what is the difference.
Friends may come and go like seasons or be there for life.
Relationships require a deeper level of commitment but it takes both partners wanting to work at this emotional connection.
More and more there seems to be a trend of friends going out for an evening of laughs, weekend boys/girls getaway or even choosing to take a friend instead of your partner to social events. The danger of this brings resentment, isolation, judgement, anger and feelings of low self worth.
There is a time and place for mates get togethers, hunts and gathers, women talk, you know what I am talking about BUT and yes this is a BIG BUT, there is also times when you need to decide if this person you are with in a relationship is the person you truly want to be/spend your life with.
If the answer is YES….WHY? Reason this out with a mediator. Then take the time and effort to build strong relationship foundations with commitment and learning each others love language.
If the answer is NO….WHY? Reason this out with a mediator. Then be honest with each other and allow both of you to be released, grow and move forward in life.
