A Relationship On The Rocks

What is holding you back?

Fear of rejection.

Your pride.

Life is short. Some lives end very unexpectedly. You really don’t know how many more chances you have to make things right.

Don’t end up suffering with regret. Regret that you didn’t try before it was too late and now you will never have a chance again. Don’t procrastinate!

Try starting with a small gesture. Possibly send a card or a text message saying something simple such as “Just thinking of you.” or “How have you been?” Just try something.

If some time has passed since the conflict, hopefully, the emotions have decreased and there will be room for healing and restoration.

Restoration is the goal. It is not about who was right and who was wrong.

Be the initiator. Make the first move.

You may be pleasantly surprised.

The Balance Act

Remember the tetter-totter? One person on each end. If one pushes up, the other goes down. Or if both are the same weight, the tetter-toter is balanced.

Generally, most people are out of balance in their favor. Most of their life is spent for themselves and their family.

But there are those out-of-balance types that have the opposite problem. To the detriment of themselves and their loved ones, they give excessively to others.

Only you can determine what is balanced for you. Be aware of your needs and the needs of your loved ones. Are you meeting your personal needs and the needs of those closest to you?

Are your relationships strong and healthy or is there resentment because you are missing too often?

Be aware. Talk to those closest to you. Always be checking that the tetter-totter is level.
