Instead of setting goals, try a relationship theme to encourage growth in your connections.
Building healthy relationships isn’t easy, and maintaining them is far from simple. To make sure you protect the work you’ve put into your connections with the people in your life, you might be tempted to set goals. The problem with setting a goal for a relationship, though, is that it creates a pass-fail situation. What happens if you don’t reach that goal? Both you and the other person involved will feel disappointment.
Instead of setting yourself up for potential problems, why not set an intention in your relationships with themes? A relationship theme is something you and the other person in the relationship commit to bringing more of into your lives. Your theme could be honesty, or gratitude, or patience, or love.
You and your friend, family member, or partner just need to choose something you want to journey towards! Setting a theme can breathe growth into your relationship without putting stress on anyone involved.
It’s hard to be a good friend and partner if you’re not taking good care of yourself. Come keep your mind and body healthy at dance, yoga, and Pilates classes at One Body Studios in La Habra, California! Contact us for more information.
