Happy New Year- To start your relationships off in a positive direction in the new year, here are 3 seemingly simple questions that you may want to ask yourself:
How well do I love?
How well do I communicate?
How well do I make repair attempts after an argument?
The reason I ask these questions is because most people discuss these topics when they come to relationship counselling. This is where we often get stuck, feel blocked, misunderstood or hurt. The tricky thing is that the answers will be somewhat similar yet unique for each individual. It may be useful to share your answers with a loved one and to perhaps hear their answers too. You may learn something new about yourself or the other person you are relating to. I have found that it is important to take the time to sit down with your loved ones and talk about the things that are really close to your heart and that matter to you. Remember timing is important so pick a time where you both have the space to relate to each other.
