Good relationships have a "flow" which floats smoothly along a continuum where each partner feels validated, affirmed, heard and loved. Each partner is open and willing to listen, smile, and respect the other's point of view.
If your relationship is being interrupted by bumps in the road, or stones in the stream, seeking counseling with a licensed therapist might help you achieve a smooth, honoring, sacred bond.
You may grow into this gorgeous, flowering partnership. It's spring.
