Ordinarily, anyone who’s had a serious relationship knows that relationships are hard work. If you don’t “do the work” of staying connected and navigating each other’s triggers and shortcomings, your relationship will atrophy and eventually fall apart.
They are hard work because we tend to attract the people as partners who know how to push our buttons the best, and over time, even the smallest flaws in our partners can become difficult to be with because of repeating patterns.
In this lesson, we look at Breakthrough #2 as a totally different way to view our relationship. We'll explore how when you relate to relationship as work, you are bringing in the associations of burden, obligations, and all manner of heavy and unpleasant things and how those in extraordinary relationship relate to their relationships instead.
Share in the comments what privileges you have because of the relationships you are in that you are grateful for.
