Couples come to therapy voicing frustrations about their partner. Typically this means that they want their partner to change to accommodate their own desires.
Guess what this creates? Conflict, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, anger, resentment, intimacy divide.
Why do humans attempt to mold their partner into the person they envision? Why is it so difficult for people to accept their partner unconditionally? Why do we think we're always right?
What do you think unconditional positive regard and acceptance bring to a marriage or relationship?
Freedom. Freedom from expenditure of energy on attempts to change one's partner. How freeing.
Would you like to work on acceptance?
