Do you suffer from communication disconnects between you and your loved ones?
💦 Wanted to share this with you this sunny/ rainy/ blowy/ sleety Friday … in case you needed to hear it too. 💦
I had sent this response today to a person in a private group that I am a part of.
Back Story: The woman was hurting and reaching out for support from her tribe. She was saying that her S.O. (Significant Other, I am guessing. That alone took me 10 minutes to figure out) wanted her to get a “real job” and stop being a stay at home mom and do what every other person in the world has to do (meanwhile she takes care of the kids, him, driving everyone everywhere, cooking, cleaning the house, meeting everyones needs PLUS they do not NEED additional income, they are fine living on his).
On top of this, she was also squelching her own dreams of starting a coaching business because she didn’t have time with everything else she was responsible for.
❓Would you agree there is a communication disconnect somewhere in this relationship?
❓Would you agree that there is the possibility of a communication disconnect somewhere in ALL of our love relationships?
If so, read on.
Sometimes support comes in a different package than we expected.
I just finished watching a short video of Oprah and Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. King.
He shared these 4 mantras, and I would like to pass them on to you to possibly consider working through with your SO, if you are so inclined.
I hope they can help you open the lines of communication.
🌿 Darling, I’m here for you.
🌿 Darling, I know you are there.
🌿 Darling, I know you suffer.
🌿 Darling, I suffer.
🌈 Imagine if we could make ourselves this vulnerable in all of our love relationships? 🌈
