You get to choose who you play with. Life is an adventure to savor–not a drudgery to get through. Do you really want to continue the dramas? Maybe you like it. Maybe that is comfortable for you. Or, maybe it is just a habit you do not see.
When I practiced psychotherapy, I often worked in Competency Based therapy. That means each person has a communication style they employ that works for them. That style may be one where they constantly create arguments. OR maybe they need to create drama or high emotions to get others to come to their rescue.
The point is, whatever style one employs, they do so out of their awareness. By creating a relationship with a therapist, they do in the microcosm of the therapeutic relationship what they do in the macrocosm that composes their world.
Remember, how you do anything is how you do everything.
If you find yourself in an unhappy relationship, first decide what you want from that person. Determine whether or not you even want that person in your life now. After all, you change every day. People who fit into your world before may no longer fit–or you may no longer fit into their world.
Know your terms of the relationship. Make that commitment to yourself–in all your relationships. Just because you have known someone a long time does not mean they currently belong in your life.
When I was injured years ago, I discovered that some people who I had thought were my friends really weren’t. They could not handle seeing me in an altered state–with lots of struggles over the long healing period. And they dropped out of my world when I most needed them.
Surprisingly, some people I didn’t even count as friends came forth. You see, you never know who is a friend to you until you define the term “relationship.”
Take a good look at yourself. See the beautiful person who you truly are. Demand respect–from yourself first and then from every single person in your life
The behavior patterns that create your relationships operate out of your awareness–on automatic, The bottom line is only you can change your life…when you are ready to do so. Knowing the programs running your subconscious mind allows you to override what does not work and replace it with programs that do work.
I can show you—but you have to ask.
