Relationships are vital.
As young people, we tend to rush into relationships without testing them to see if they are healthy for us or not. Many of us aren't even sure what a "healthy" relationship looks like. Our society has divorce rates on the rise and relationships of broken people trying to survive in the daily grind that we forget what it means to nurture ourselves and others.
Some people, both male and female, count themselves fortunate to be chosen to be in an intimate relationship with another human being. Our self esteem, self worth, self love, shredded by the chaos of the world and other people's choices as well as our own, can create uncertainty.
So how do we, "fix it"?
Learn the truth of your situation from professionals. It may take great strength for you to walk away for a short time and find balance again, but it is a step in the right direction.
Integrity of being a steward over your decisions and choices in life. You may have to make some changes. the biggest change could be deciding not to cope with one another, fight or flight mode, but genuinely love one another.
Victorious living comes at a price. Are you willing to pay it? Find a life coach that has traveled the road ahead of you. Someone who is where you want to be in five years or less and learn from them. Whomever you choose, may it be someone who is a good fit for you. Not all life coaches are good for all people. A football player wouldn't learn how to 'play ball' from a baseball coach. Same is true in life. Network with someone who has similar interests as you.
Evaluate where you are often. Taking inventory of what is going on in your life and where you are at in your relationships is vital for you and your friends and family. Because someone is important to you, does not always mean you are important to them. It's okay to take the time to converse with one another and evaluate where your relationship is so that it is healthy, sustainable and nurturing. If not. Love one another enough to walk away.
