Katheryn and Mathew, both in their 50?s, have been together for two years. Both have been previously married and divorced. When they met, they fell madly in love, which lasted for a few months. Then the conflicts started.

Both Katheryn and Mathew left their marriages because they were with partners who were completely unwilling to open to learning regarding the conflicts. Both Katheryn and Mathew wanted to find a partner who would learn and grow with them. They found each other at a personal growth seminar.

However, each time a conflict occurs [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/cj-mosley-jersey/]C.J. Mosley Jersey[/url] , which is often at this point in their relationship, they both threaten to leave. Katheryn is consistently yelling, ?I?m had it! I?m leaving!? while Mathew yells, ?Why don?t you just leave!? They each have a foot out the door.

Katheryn and Mathew are stuck in a typical control-resist relationship system. Katheryn wants to leave because she is so frustrated by Mathew?s constant withdrawal and resistance, while Mathew wants to leave because he can?t stand Katheryn?s constant attempts to control him and make him responsible for her feelings.

Leaving is a waste of time for Katheryn and Mathew. Actually, these two people have exactly what they asked for ? someone to learn and grow with. Both Katheryn and Mathew are willing to learn and explore at some point after the conflict. Each are slowly becoming more aware of their end of their dysfunctional relationship system. If they leave [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/curtis-martin-jersey/]Curtis Martin Jersey[/url] , they have no one to come up against, no one who triggers their issues, so their issues will not be addressed until they are in another relationship. Then the same issues will surface.

The people I work with often believe that it would be easier to start over with someone else, or easier to be alone. I assure them that, in my experience, all learning and growing relationships are very challenging ? that all couples who desire to create a really wonderful and loving relationship have to go through the trenches of healing their woundedness within the relationship. It may be easier to be alone [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/leonard-williams-jersey/]Leonard Williams Jersey[/url] , but it?s lonely and the major relationship issues never get healed.

If you are a person who deeply desires to continue your emotional and spiritual growth, and you are with a partner who also desires this, than DON?T LEAVE. No matter how bad the fights get or the distance gets ? except if there is continued physical violence - keep at it. It?s too easy to leave, to easy to blame the other person, too easy to miss the incredible opportunity that relationships provide for healing and growth.

It?s especially important to hang in there when children are involved. I?m not saying to stay just for the children. If you are with a physically violent partner, or a partner who has no desire to take any personal responsibility [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/jordan-jenkins-jersey/]Jordan Jenkins Jersey[/url] , or a substance abuser who has no desire to heal from his or her addiction, then you may need to leave. But if you have a partner who is on a growth path, who is willing to explore with you, who is willing to have counseling with you, who is willing to learn to take responsibility for him or herself, then leaving is not the answer. No matter how difficult things get at times [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/darron-lee-jersey/]Darron Lee Jersey[/url] , you have a responsibility to yourself, your partner, your family, as well as to the whole of humanity to do the learning you came to this planet to do.

If you are fortunate enough to be with a partner who is, at least at some of the time, opens to learning with you [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/ardarius-stewart-jersey/]ArDarius Stewart Jersey[/url] , you are fortunate indeed. The relationship will take you to the depths of your dark side and to the heights of your ability to love. It will take you where you need to go, so don?t give up just because it?s so hard. The challenge is to be doing a daily Inner Bonding practice of going within, connecting with yourself and with Spirit, and learning what it means to move beyond control, beyond resistance, beyond punishing the other [url=http://www.teamjetsjerseys.com/marcus-maye-jersey/]Marcus Maye Jersey[/url] , beyond threats and bullying, beyond blame, beyond being victim, beyond compliance, and beyond fear. The challenge is to be healing  he relationship until you are able to remain loving to yourself and your partner no matter what your partner is doing. As long as you are triggered by your partner?s behavior, your healing is not complete and there is no point in leaving. If you reach a point where you are no longer triggered by your partner?s behavior, you might discover that your partner has also changed, even though you believed he or she was not open to learning and growing. If your partner remains closed and there is really nothing more for you to learn, then it might be time for you to leave.

Get both feet in there and do your inner work before even thinking about leaving. Don?t let your wounded self decide your rela . [url=http://www.cheapmensshoesshop.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapjordanshoesonline.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapairmax270mens.com/]Cheap Max Shoes[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapairmax95wholesale.com/]Cheap Air Max 97[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapairmax90essential.com/]Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes[/url]   [url=http://www.airmax270womenssale.com/]Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes[/url]   [url=http://www.airjordanretrosforsale.com/]Jordan 11 Shoes For Sale[/url]   [url=http://www.2018airmaxsale.com/]Air Max 2018 Outlet[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapwholesalenikenfljerseys.com/]Cheap Jerseys[/url]   [url=http://www.cheapdiscountjerseysnfl.com/]Cheap Jerseys From China[/url]
