At the root of relationship conflict are powerful dynamics that start in your childhood. As you learn to understand and unravel these original wounds and challenges you can free yourself from the pain and suffering relationships bring.
I’ve never heard anyone say that relationships are easy. For most of us, in addition to joy and pleasure, there is pain and struggle.
Some of the pain comes from the tendency to choose partners who are familiar to us.
This familiarity comes from the relationship models we learn in childhood. Most of our parents didn’t model healthy relationships for us. This leaves us choosing unhealthy dynamics to feel “at home.”
What dynamics are familiar to you? What do you choose again and again that is painful?
Pain also happens when old wounds and triggers show up with a partner. Even though history is more to blame than the current situation, it seems like it’s your partner’s fault!
Did you know that you can actually get to the root of your suffering, and unravel those patterns, so you struggle less and love more?
