"Help me stay calm in my most important relationships"
All of us get irritable and yet, some people find a way to embody calm, peace and balance within their relationships. How do they consistently keep patience and compassion, clarity and focus, creativity and harmony during the most trying times? Consistently open to renewing and restoring their relationships without drama.
Most of us are emotionally and physically exhausted. The stress of our lives makes our relationships more difficult. We're quick to react with anger and frustration, impatience and defensiveness. And then we hold back our wants and needs, because we're scared of confrontation and the other person's reaction.
We're in a loop of dissatisfaction that feels never-ending.
Living in a state of depletion.
And, well, right now, it really is the song that never ends.
The soundtrack of our days.
You're starting to see it now, the hurt and anxiety that your reactions cause you and others in your life. At home with your partner and kids. At work with your colleagues, employees or employer. With your friends and family. Heck, it's even seeping out into your interactions at the post office or grocery store.
Day-in-day-out, the same interactions, the same arguments, the same stressors.
The same wish for it to feel and look different.
Sometimes it may feel like you're a 13 year old in a grown up body.
You're not the only one.
Recent statistics show that there is more anger and tension within our interactions since Covid. More anxiety and depression and repeated, sudden episodes of impulsive behavior.
Maybe you've tried to stop saying the same things and reacting the same way, but it doesn't work or stick, and you're at a loss for how to fix it.
