Should my partner be my "soul mate" and best friend or am I supposed to find the person that is the most "compatible"?
Am I supposed to forfeit my dreams for the sake of the relationship, or is the relationship supposed to take the place of my dreams?
In many cases, we have been led to believe that we must reduce our dreams and make "sacrifices" to fit the idea of what a couple is "supposed" to be.
This is why many people feel "trapped" in their relationship, whether it is a long term committed one or even when just dating for a few months!
Do you ever feel like you are having to "sacrifice" for your partner?
Do you ever feel "trapped" by your relationships?
Many of us do and want to solve the problem, but it seems that no matter where we turn, we tend to get a different answer.
We have all learned about relationships... from parents, friends, family, maybe the internet, but what have we been taught? What if all that we have learned is actually in direct opposition to what we are really looking for?
What we really need is growth,
both as individuals and as partners.
If both partners focus on their own growth, and in turn, encourage the growth of each other, the positive energy produced is what fuels the growth in the relationship.
