Relationships Can Be Challenging

GO AWAY…NO, COME HERE: In our closest relationships, it’s natural for our emotions to fluctuate between two extremes – at times wanting this person close and at times wanting them to stay far away. With this person, you will naturally swing between needing their affection and then needing your space. At times you will want to speak civilly and in other moments you will want to scream loudly.

In fact, the swing between opposite emotions can be so extreme that you might even imagine how good it would feel to throw them off a cliff –but then if you actually did, you’d immediately rush to the bottom to catch them. Such is the balance of life. Such is the truth of love. Embrace and appreciate the gift of balance that these relationships bring.
