At first everyone I heard about was splitting up, talking divorce or having tension in their marriage or relationship.
Then I realized that some people’s romantic relationships are going completely the other way: getting suddenly better.
What’s going on?
Today I figured it out: the deeper truth is showing. We are being asked to do the really deep emotional and spiritual work on ‘stuff’ brought on by an aware and responsible romantic relationship. You know, the stuff you can tolerate from everyone but not from your life partner. Or the stuff that you can hide from everyone but not from your life partner.
I think many couples are cracking under the pressure because:
- one of the parties does not want to do that kind of in depth emotional and spiritual work and leaves the relationship
- OR there is no work to be done and a relationship that is dead and was running on auto-pilot comes undone.
Other couples are suddenly changing for the better or getting engaged etc for the same reason: there is deep work to be done together and both parties are agreeing to dive into it. Together. How exciting!
So: commitment or no commitment. What’s your story at the moment?
