“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein
When we’re struggling in our marriages, we’re always looking for a way to improve it, to make it feel better.
But all too often, what ends up happening is using the same thinking and ways to engage with one another because it’s all we know. For instance:
And the relationship stays in the same painful pattern…
Or worse, the resentments increase over time as the hope you once had that things might change begins to dissolve and you begin to wonder, How did my marriage get so bad?
How did we get here? And how do we fix it?
You’re simply doing what you know how to do. This is the only way you know how to communicate or engage with your partner.
But that way of thinking is what got you to this point.
And you can’t find the solution to the problem with the same thinking that got you here.
So it’s time to try something new…
And it is time to shift your thinking…your way of being…and the way you engage in order to see if something new can be created – because what you’ve been doing is what got you here.
If you know how to do all that…awesome, you’re all set.
If you don’t, maybe you should consider engaging with someone who does. You can apply and schedule a complimentary Truth & Clarity session to see if I can help you do this differently.
