“Each moment describes who you are, and gives you the opportunity to decide if that’s who you want to be.”
The gift of clarity and observation. In processing through being “broken up with” on New Year’s Eve, I have had a true gift of insight into the type of relationship I want. This is a “teaching moment” for me.
One gift a loving relationship brings to us is the “truth” that it is a safe and loving environment for us to be ourselves. To be vulnerable and open with our partner and know that we will not be judged as we go through our journey and adventures.
In a loving relationship everyone has to work on something for the rest of their lives. “Stuff” is always bubbling up in us. Each person is on his/her own path. How many times has it happened?! A new realization that when something happened it brought up anxiety, fear, this vulnerable moment. And to realize that when this happens you have a partner in your life who is there to stand by and help you through it! Not judging us or taking it personally because they know that we are simply experiencing our Journey.
THAT is the GIFT of relationship. Most people never know what a real loving and safe environment in a relationship looks like. The beautiful part is that they may have started out loving you unconditionally with all your “querks” and OCD tendencies!
I have been blessed with two relationships that I felt safe and loved to be allowed to be me! Yet I have to realize that some people have never experienced this level of safety in their relationship. It is important to remember that when choosing your partner make sure there is love and trust for both of you to grow and become the people you really are.
