RELATIONSHIP TIPS – IDENTIFY YOUR “GOOD CONFLICTS”
According to Ken Page, LCSW, psychotherapist and author of Deeper Dating: How to Drop the Games of Seduction and Discover the Power of Intimacy
“Every couple has what I call a ‘good conflict.’ In long-term relationships, we often feel that the thing you most need from your partner is the very thing he or she is least capable of giving you. This isn’t the end of love — it’s the beginning of deeper love! Don’t run from that conflict.
It’s supposed to be there. In fact, it’s your key to happiness as a couple — if you both can name it and commit to working on it together as a couple. If you approach your ‘good conflicts’ with bitterness, blame, and contempt, your relationship will turn toxic.”
We should know, no-one is perfect and possesses all the qualities you need, so fall in love and make it work.
The concept of a PERFECT MATE is a myth, designed to deny you happiness.
Thanks and see you next week.
