Graph of a Successful Relationship

successful relationship chart

This graph from Love and Respect Now illustrates one of the reasons we struggle in relationships.  We tend to operate under the illusion that a good relationship is one that is always improving without any twists and turns.

The reality is that a true relationship involves two people learning to get along with two different backgrounds, ways of thinking, beliefs, preferences, etc, etc, etc.  A relationship without conflict is not a true relationship.

When two people engage in the humble practice of seeking first to understand the other and fight together rather than against one another, a healthy relationship is developed.

If you would like help on the twisty journey of relationships, please give CornerStone Family Services a call at 614-459-3003 to talk with one of our counselors or coaches.
