When we are experiencing trouble in our relationship, it can feel like our world is crumbling along with our relationship. Our relationship issues take a front-row spot in the presence of our minds, consuming our thoughts and causing anxiety, stress, sadness, anger, and a host of unpleasant emotions.
If you are experiencing this, I feel you, I have been there myself, and I would love nothing more than to help you move through this difficult time.
So, I want to share three tips to help you find balance and peace so you can keep moving forward.
1. First, acknowledge that everything has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Every event in history, good or bad, has followed this sequence. While you are in the middle of your relationship crisis, it might be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I promise you that it does exist. Just as with everything else, your crisis will come to an end; you will not be stuck here forever.
2. Second, ask yourself, “Who do I want to be in the midst of this story?” In the future, when you reflect on how you showed up in the middle, what would you like to see? How will you have to show up right now to make your future self proud?
3. Last but not least, know that adversity helps us grow and blossom into a better and stronger version of ourselves. Adversity is an inescapable fact of life. Even a tree must endure the constant battles of the wind. But each seed of adversity has its silver lining. As the tree battles with the wind, its roots grow stronger and deeper below the surface, enabling the tree to support itself as it grows taller and taller. Without the adversity of the wind, the tree would eventually grow too tall for its shallow roots and would topple over. With every adversity that you face, there is a benefit. Start getting curious about the good that will come out of the challenges you face? Trust God and lean into His greater plan.
I believe in you. Not only can you make it through this, but you will arrive on the other side as a grander and more magnificent YOU.
