When it comes to being in relationship with another human being, there are always, literally always, opportunities to practice conscious choice, build compassion, let go of self- judgment, learn more about yourself and gain insight into non-serving patterns you have attached to that are no longer useful or valuable. In the midst of shifting who and how you are, for the better, there will also be moments where you slip backwards into default ways of relating to yourself and others that may have proved beneficial or served as a barrier of protection before, but in the present, are not warranted. Or, you may declare new values that you have every intention to align with, but there may be a moment where you act in a way contrary to your values. Practice patience with yourself. Basic human error is a thing that does exist from which none of us are exempt. This month I have been experiencing some rude awakenings and blatant lessons around the importance of trust, communication and transparency when in relationships. Here are my insights:
2. Granting yourself and whoever you are in relationship with permission and space for natural, normal human error is suuuuper clutch. None of us are perfect, we are all evolving, including YOU. So yes, we can offer understanding to ourselves and others even in the midst of growing together. Everyone falls backwards sometimes. Cutting each other slack is necessary.
3. Transparency is the key to just going ahead and letting someone else see you. Let them see you. If you want ot build, want to grow, want to develop meaningful partnership and companionship, want to be more of who you say you want to be in the presence of yourself and those outside of you…you gotta let them see you, know you and feel you.
#ConsciousRelationship is one realm of The Conscious Life. Hopefully the insights I offer will help you take a step in.
