Acceptance

Still trying to change someone?

By | July 15th, 2012|Masculine/Feminine, Relationships|

It so often happens that men and women fall in love with each other and after the 'honeymoon period' is over, they begin to 'fall out of love' because their partner does something they don't like. When things don't 'go our way', and we begin to feel uncomfortable about that, we can start to 'try' and change the other persons behaviour.  The trouble is that it isn't possible to change someone else! The only person that can change your partners behaviour is your partner, and they have to want to do that. Usually the things we don't like to see in others are the things we don't like to see in ourselves.  After a while our partner acts like a huge [...]

Make peace with Imperfection

The other day I was in a charity shop searching for a particular book.  Although I didn't manage to find the book I wanted, I came across another book a friend had recommended years ago.  The book is called Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ..... and it's all Small Stuff,  by Richard Carlson.  I figured there was a reason why I had found this book so I decided to buy it.

What do I mean by acceptance equals freedom? Let me start by giving you an example of not accepting something... Kim and Tom have been married for over ten years.  Kim complains that Tom is incredibly untidy, actually she thinks their study  looks like a 'pig sty'. Any time Kim walks past the study, and catches sight of the 'mess', she feels irritated.  If Kim is having a 'good day', her irritation is relatively minor, but if she's having a' bad day', oh boy! does she feel disgusted and judgemental!  Deep down Kim thinks that Tom is inconsiderate, and interprets his behavior to mean that he doesn't really love her; after all if he did, he would be willing to change [...]
