The Importance of Belief and Intention in Relationships, Part II

We were recently interviewed by Michael and Jacqueline for The Intimacy Connection Talk Show. One of the topics that came up was belief and intention. Maude wrote about this last week in her own voice, and this week, it’s me. We hope this stereo signal adds depth to the subject.

When you bring expectations into a relationship, they tend to come true because a) you act in such a way that it comes to pass, and b) you see it because you expect it. Ideas like these come from what we learned from our families, our fumbling steps in early relationships, the media telling us that all relationships are hard work, and a culture that says that the law of the jungle rules and competition is king.

20 Life Skills to Keep Peace in Your Relationship "It is inevitable that in every relationship there are going to be differences, and everyone has days when their emotions can get the better of them. The problem is not that we have differences in our relationship, the problem lies in the way we handle those differences."
