Successful Relationships Reading Corner
This week’s blog is about why you have to believe in a conflict-free relationship to have one. Here are some writings on how belief affects your reality.
What You Believe Is What You See “When things aren’t going well in a relationship, we often blame the other person for our experience. We believe that we “choose” the wrong people to hang-out with or date. But guess what? If an experience shows-up time and time again, that means you are carrying it with you! And this is where the power is, because you have control over you.”
You See What You Believe “An interesting question is the degree to which your beliefs influence what you are seeing in the moment. This question was explored by Christos Bechlivanidis and David Lagnado in a fascinating paper in the August, 2013 issue of Psychological Science.”
Do Your Beliefs Reflect Reality or Create It? “it should be obvious that you’re capable of interacting with the world through direct action. If you make a decision to do something and then do it, your thoughts are affecting reality through your actions.”
