As we journey through life events can throw curves that we did not anticipate. But most of us do the best we can. In a relationship, struggles can be compounded as you “no longer have to deal with struggles of your own but you are also burdened with the struggles of your partner.
The relationship may seem to begin with rosy outlook, but quickly you learn that it goes through its peaks and valleys. Then suddenly you may be handed with a crisis that may create havoc in life so much so there is no more “your” life. You are often left to wonder if there is any more hope left for the future.
It is essential that at this stage you learn to focus on important things. Do not ponder on what future may look like but focus day to day.
No More Expectations
You are likely to live life with full of expectations- not only for you, but for your family, for your partner. Tough as it may be, you need to let go of expectations. What you will notice in the process that you have let go of the pain and anger. When you let go of the pain and anger, you allow love in.
Make Time For YOU
Sounds so simple, but you are likely to forget YOU as you are too busy being a partner, being a parent, being employee. Your most likely defense will be, “I do not have time.” Well, you will need to find to focus on you. You need to find time to allow yourself the space to attain nirvana- state of feeling balanced.
Laugh a Little (Lot)!
In time of crisis, nothing seems to go right, who can laugh, you say. True indeed, laughter may not make crisis disappear, but it provides needed relief. It is often said that laughter is the best medicine. Even when succumbed to despair, a simple laughter eases the pain and inner soul finds relief. Sometimes all you can do is learn to laugh at yourself. There are funny moments in every day. Find them and laugh a little.
