Relationships can be tough, even in the most loving ones there will be hurt, the need for forgiveness and healthy boundaries. It’s worth remembering that when it comes to conflict:
Those who attack are simply scared!
Nowadays it’s often very easy to walk away from someone you’re not getting along with, but what do you do when the person you’re not getting along with is your primary relationship?
Stop for a moment and consider that I’m not talking about your wife, husband or significant other…
Your primary relationship is… The one you have with yourself!
On the 29 May 1953 the later to be knighted Edmund Hillary was the first man to conquer the seemingly unconquerable Mount Everest…
Can you imagine the ongoing relationship squabbles taking place inside that guy’s head? “It’s too high, no one’s ever climbed it, it’s impossible. You’re crazy to even try, you’re going to fail.”
In all likelihood all these might have been the things he heard out in the world and maybe also in the inner world of his mind. Half way up when the weather got treacherous and on his third attempt his mind and in all likelihood and his body would have been screaming for him to; give up this ridiculous dream.
However, Sir Edmund Hillary had a relationship with himself that forgave the past and held strict boundaries and as a result after three failed attempts he finally did it, he conquered Everest.
In an interview the media said, “You’ve conquered the mountain,” and Hillary said:
“No, I’ve conquered myself.”
What mountain lays before you that in order to conquer it, you must develop a healthy relationship with yourself ?
