Happy New Year..
The New Year is finally here and the first month is already almost over, with only a few days left to go. Have all your resolutions been met? You know the ones, “ promises of being a better partner/spouse”. How about the promises to be nicer to one another, how about “this will be the year that we communicate better and have a better relationship”. I hope that whatever your New Year’s resolutions are, that you are working it to the best of your abilities. However, statistics show that most resolutions fail by the end of the first month. Hopefully, yours will last the test of time.
Relationships are hard enough and trying to work through difficulties, because of a new season can help to create anxiety for most couples. If you were already working on your relationship, please continue to do so. If you are on the right track, it should only continue to get better. However, if you haven’t been working on your relationship in the past and now have decided that you would like to start with the New Year, it may not be as easy as think.
Like anything else in this life that we decide to do, it will take time, energy and sometimes discomfort. Time to break old habits and patterns and replace them with new ones. It’s in that process of change, where one will either make it or break not. This is the period of time, where it may seem too hard or too difficult to keep going. You may want to give up during those times, but if you can only hang on for a little bit longer, it may just be worth it in the end.
What I do know, is that nothing will last forever and tomorrow is not promised to anyone.
If the person that you love is worth staying with, then I advise you to do everything in your power to make it work and hold on. However, if they are not; then do them and yourself a favor and let them go. Life is short, enjoy it. Don’t sweat the small stuff and they really are small stuff. Stay healthy, happy and positive. If you need help strengthening your relationship in this New Year, I’m here to help.
