Conversations with God – Relationships

This is a question that NDW asks God about relationships.
“When will I learn enough about relationships to have them go smoothly? Is there any way to be happy in relationships? Must they always be challenging?”

Happily not all of us have the problems that NDW seems to have with relationships, but at some stage we will no doubt have relationship difficulties. That encompasses relationships with family, friends, colleagues as well as our more intimate relationships.

God has a few suggestions for NDW, ….”total honesty, – be willing to assert, acknowledge and declare exactly how you feel about a thing, – kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth gently, but totally and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings you new clarity.”. page 134 Book 1

There are several important point in the above quote.
• Be willing to declare how you feel about a thing.
• Do it kindly.
• Live YOUR truth, not anyone else’s, gently but totally and consistently
• Change your truth when your experience gives you better understanding.

Very often in relationships we spend a lot of time trying to work out what the other person wants us to do, then we blame them if things don’t work out the way we want them to.

Don’t play games, ask honest open questions and make clear open statements. Own your feelings. The way you feel is your responsibility – you choose how to feel about a thing, no one can actually make you feel anything.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude”. Maya Angelou

Do what you have to do kindly, own your actions. “ I am doing this because I will feel better when…..” not “I am doing this because you have made me feel so mad, sad etc”.

Live YOUR truth, be yourself, you will never please everybody all the time, but you can please a lot of people some of he time just by being yourself. Your experiences give you YOUR truth, and your truth will not be the same as someone else’s truth, we all experience things differently. Be true to yourself, live by your beliefs and values, in line with being the best you can be.

Change your truth when you learn something new or different – remember it’s YOUR truth, not THE truth. You may have made a judgment about a person or an event, based on the knowledge you had at the time – be willing to change that when you receive more information.

The next e-book I’m writing, “How to Get Your Relationship Back on Track”, will deal in depth with issues such as communication within relationships, owning your feelings, how to argue safely and much more, however, the essence of successful relationships in in the above quote.

Not always easy but worth working for.
