Find or Create a Soul Mate?
Wednesday April 25, 2012
Everyone wants the ideal: Home, car, kids, friends, everything! What about finding the ideal relationship?
There is danger in attempting to FIND the ideal; it results in unrealistic expectations! Our culture suggests we should find the perfect soul mate, but the reality is: that person does not exist! No one will realistically meet all the expectations of your perfect soul mate. This common myth sets people up for major disappointment. A better approach is to find someone with whom you want to spend the rest of your life and then work together to create an ideal relationship with that person, becoming soul mates over time. It takes work and it might take a life time but the process will be worth the challenge!
Action: Accept the imperfections in your spouse. Have fun holding hands on the journey of life creating your ideal relationship through the shared joys and sorrows, successes and failures of your life together.
