What's going on in your life?

I was speaking with a new acquaintance recently and she confided that she was totally taken by surprise when her husband had told her he wanted a divorce to marry someone else. I know that some people can be pretty good at hiding their double life, but I also know that if we live consciously, we are aware of our surroundings and that includes the climate of our relationships, especially the ones with people we share a home with. I have heard similar stories before and everytime, I have noticed that the person sharing generally kept conversations on a light level.

The best way to kill a relationship is to avoid dealing with problems and the quickest way to do that is to simply remain unaware. Just like you must love yourself before you can know how to love someone else, you must also be aware of what you are feeling and be comfortable with it before you can sense what your partner is feeling. This allows you to address the situation. It's not a guarantee that all will be well, but your new awareness will help you to address the challenges and hopefully bring the relationship back on a healthy course.

Happy Valentine's Day - take the day to connect with yourself and all the people you love.
