Not every relationship is meant to be forever
There are gifts in past relationships that didn't work out
I cannot control what my partner does but I CAN control my reactions. Keeping the focus on myself is a path to power.
There is a delicate balance between honoring myself as an individual and honoring myself as a part of something bigger than me (the relationship, or a family or a community)
The more I blame my partner the less access to feeling happy I have.
Staying curious about each other sets us up for the most productive conversations.
Challenges are opportunities to move closer to each other.
