At some point in our lives, we’ve all experienced aspects of an unhealthy romantic relationship. And no matter how you slice it, how you feel about your romantic relationship plays a significant role in how you perceive ALL areas of your life.
If your relationship feels healthy and fulfilling, chances are, life is good.
On the other hand, if your relationship lacks harmony and appears to have no hope for improvement, chances are, this sense of conflict and burden carries over into other areas of your life as well.
It’s hard to feel excited about life when your relationship at home isn’t working! And if you’re feeling confused and stressed out about what to do, this can easily deplete your energy and sense of well-being.
When you think about the why behind this, it makes perfect sense. And when you know the why, you can start getting clear on how you can change this situation for the better.
ALL of your relationships influence the quality of your life, but as an adult, the health of your romantic relationship plays a primary role in the overall health of your mind, body, heart and soul!
Your soul is the source of inspiration that fuels the spark for how you ‘show up’ in your life. It provides everything you need to understand your true essence and feel the freedom of being your authentic self.
Moshe Dayan, who played an important role in negotiating a peace treaty, said: “Freedom is the oxygen of your soul.”
So if there’s anything in your life that hinders the way you want to express yourself, it feels suffocating. Why? Because instead of feeling the freedom to be yourself, you feel the burden of trying to be somebody else.
Being true to your nature should feel natural. Unfortunately though, many of us have been taught and conditioned to think otherwise – that we need to act a certain way in order for others to accept us.
And so begins the stories of our lives. We learn how to play the role of certain characters in order to gain acceptance from the people with whom we form relationships.
After so much time of doing this, you begin to lose your sense of self, and your soul starts calling for you to come back. It’s craving the freedom to be the real you.
Your soul is specifically designed for YOU and is here to help you live your best life. If you’re having an experience that feels stifling, including your romantic relationship, you’re being called to give your soul the oxygen it needs to thrive.
Returning to the beginning of this message…if your romantic relationship doesn’t feel healthy, and you’re having a hard time with who you’re being and how you’re reacting to this dilemma, this is why you’re feeling confused and stressed out about what to do. How could you possibly know what to do if you’re not being true to yourself, right?
So how do you improve this difficult situation? You choose to nourish your soul. You learn how to rediscover and honor your true self again. And you ask for support when you need it.
You deserve to be in a healthy and loving romantic relationship, and listening to and nourishing your soul is one of the most empowering actions you can take to realize this.
