Being "in love" is a wonderful feeling but it is difficult to maintain that sensation indefintely, It seems that when we get "comfortable" with that special someone, it is easy to forget the behaviors that generated the loving, supportive and appreciative behaviours that creted those feelings when things were so new and exciting. Eventually, almost all types of relationships will develop challenges, frustrations and problems to reconcile. If we can step back from the initial reaction, it seems to me that these issues often are a reflection of our own inner fears, resistance, attachments or past. Working through those issues internally and truly acknowledging the other person encourages a supportive, loving and accepting environment to facilitate resolution of any conflict-we can then embrace more of life's possibilities together!
How about you-what are your thoughts about relationships as teachers like the "mirrors of life"?
