In my opinion, we live in a throw-away society. If something is broken nowadays, we just go out and buy / find a new one. We don’t spend the time or money fixing anything in order to make it work more effectively.
The cold, hard truth is that successful relationships take time and a bunch of patience in order to see the payoffs.
The way our throw-away society thinks is that if we have a conflict within our relationship, then we are probably with the wrong person. That way of thinking is based on our society’s concept of instant gratification.
If we have conflict, lets first look at our accountability and how we can grow within the relationship we’re already in. This is done in a safe, confidential space where couples can speak their truths openly and effectively.
