Opposites attract. It’s the chemistry of we relate to each other. It’s almost like our soul is seeking balance.
At first we are excited by our partner and the promise of a new relationship. Connection is easy and frequent. We share the best sides of ourselves in those early years, talking about our hurts and trying to be a comfort to each other. We call this phase the honeymoon period, and it can be intoxicating.
But every shiny, new relationship will eventually tarnish with time. Conflicts inevitably arise, and your compassion for your spouse will be put to the test. Do you view your partner as a resource or a threat?
Don’t struggle needlessly. Reach out for help.
