When we appreciate the value of our differences, we begin to see them not as a threat, but an enhancement to our relationship. We may even see that it was the differences themselves that initially attracted us to each other in the first place.
As most of us know, relationships can be challenging! We tend to bring all our baggage from our childhood into our primary relationships and create a ...
There will always be an unequal accounting of love given and received at any point in a relationship. It is only natural that sometimes one of you will be emotionally up and the other will be down.
