Spreading Peace One Relationship at a Time
Maude is away this weekend being Nana (and loving it!), so I’m flying solo in this week’s blog. Time and time again we describe our relationship as peaceful and free of conflict and hear “That’s nice for you, but…,” so I’d like to address that here. Yes, it’s true that we agree on politics; neither of us are cleanliness freaks; we like the same music; we’d rather take serendipitous trips than plan every detail in advance. But there are a number of differences as well...

This week's blog was on how differences need not be problems, and how knowing yourself is a key to achieving this. Here are some articles on these areas.

Marriage: 7 Ways to be more accepting of your spouse "When you’re happy and fulfilled as an individual, you’ll be less critical of your partner. You are 100% capable of meeting your own needs. This takes a lot of pressure off the marriage. It boils down to personal responsibility for self-love. If you love yourself and are responsible for your own happiness, you’re able to love your partner simply for being your partner instead of seeing your partner as a need-meeter."

20 Things You Must Accept If You Want Your Relationship To Succeed "Acceptance is what will get you through to the other side. Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that you can choose it for exactly what it is. Because when you do choose it for what it is and what it isn’t, it brings something entirely new into your world."

How the Differences in Your Relationship Can Be Gifts "When relationships reach a rocky patch or fail altogether, it’s easy to cite another person’s flaws as the culprit. Pointing fingers is, after all, far easier than self-examination. Yet, if you recognize that all your relationships, romantic or otherwise, serve as a mirror for yourself, you’d realize that these “flaws” are present in you too. Getting angry or irritated after recognizing them in someone else means that you are denying them in yourself and not fully accepting the “bad” with the “good.”"
