Relationships are what determines the quality of our lives. The better our relationships, the better quality of life we will experience. If you think about it we are around people almost every second of our lives, some of us even choose not to sleep alone. If you can learn to be happy within yourself and happy with the quality of your relationships, the other things really, do fall into place. Think for a minute, who do you spend most of your time with? Is it your spouse, co-workers, children, in-laws? And what is the quality of those relationships? Would you rate those relationships with a percentage, a number, an adjective such as great, bad, or so so? Do we even think about this throughout our day, week, or even life? If these relationships determine the quality of our lives do you think that investing some time in making them thrive is beneficial?
THE ANSWER IS YES! ABSOLUTELY!
We are wired neuro-biologically to create connections with others. Therefore, it is in part biology that makes us social creatures, in turn giving us the need for connection. We are born into a family, a community, a culture, where we encounter people and develop relationships from the moment we take our first breath. Often times life events or situations can pollute these relationships and let’s be honest, there is no relationship handbook. Usually we adapt our parent’s way of handling situations and conflict, which isn’t always the best way. If it’s not our parent’s way we may have learned something from a friend, a book, maybe religion or culture or simply trial and heartbreak.
Even these methods at times are not effective, as our own personal values, experiences, or failed relationships can get in the way of the person you want a deeper connection with. Each individual’s personal experiences influence personal thoughts and emotions, which in turn develop our values and how we view the world. Relationship coaching takes these things into account and finds practical ways of deepening your connections and strengthening your relationships.
Who benefits? You, everyone in your life, and everyone around you whether you encounter them on a daily basis or as infrequently as an acquaintance. In your personal life, social, community, and globally you and everyone around you benefits.
