What do successful relationships look like?
Success in our relationships is not a destination to be reached as if it was a place on the map. Instead, success in our relationships is the everyday positive, purposeful, intentional steps we take along that journey.
As is always the case, something happens while we’re on that journey. Life happens. Conflicts arise between you and your spouse. Or between you and your children. You and your parents or siblings. Your friends. Your faith community. Your colleagues at work.
Life is filled with challenges. Stress. Worry. Anxiety. Depression. Addictions to substances or activities can us with a false promise of a quick way to escape or cope with conflicts like these.
Everyone goes through difficult times.
Some people get derailed by life’s difficulties
Others find a way through.
What is it that enables some people to get through life’s challenges?
The answer may be found in decisions they make during those times.
The decision to lean in, and not out.
The decision to evaluate unhelpful, sometimes toxic self-talk and replace it with realistic and hope-based self-talk.
The decision to turn one’s live over to the care of God.
The decision to talk about the struggles with a trusted friend, coach, pastor, or counselor.
The decision to persevere. And do it again tomorrow.
There are no simple answers to complex problems. But the positive choices you make today can lead you to a better future.
