On my Facebook I’ve been really blessed with lots of positive friends whom are all very generous enough to post positive, affirming messages. Along with that I see many posts that also revolve around relationship advice. I think that’s the beauty of the age we live in, we have so many opportunities to learn and grow with all of the abundant information we’re given. And not just random information, but pertinent information that can help shape and form our lives for the better. Naturally to me, relationships are one of the most important things on this earth, so with such a precious gift that we’ve been bestowed with, I thinks its of paramount importance that we receive the proper direction to help govern our path.
With so many options to receive free relationship advice, how do we really know which is best and applicable to our lives and situations? I mean one quote says that if they can’t love you enough then you should walk away, while the other says that real love endures, so with such contradicting advice, how do we know which direction to turn? Who is right and who is wrong? In this specific example, both are right. If you’re dating someone who is self absorbed and refuses to compromise or negotiate, hanging out hoping that they’ll change can be damaging to your soul and emotional well being. However when in a very committed relationship, walking away because you guys keep fighting over petty matters that can be resolved, is not the answer. Relationships are a beautiful gift and there are times that you have to roll up your sleeves and be ready to fight to keep the gift.
However when you see all of this advice being proposed and you find yourself smack dab in the middle ofrelationship turmoil, reasoning out which advice is fitting for you can be rather challenging. Today I saw a fantastic quote running through my Facebook feed that said this, “Trust your instincts. Your intuition doesn’t lie.” I have found that my instincts, my intuition have helped steer my life so brilliantly when nothing else made sense. There have been times in my life when everyone around me was shouting “Go left!”, but my gut said “Right is the way for you.” Following your intuition is a very courageous move and so to keep yourself in a place where you can hear, feel and know when your intuition is speaking is imperative.
To get in tune with yourself again, to bring yourself back to a place where you can hear the voice of your intuition, you’ll more than likely need silence. The cell phone will need to be put down, the radio turned down and fear will have to be silenced. The truth is, deep down inside you know what is best. But when other voices are allowed in to muddy the waters, in that moment things can get rather confusing. Find your place of peace and when intuition goes against the voice of fear, follow it all costs. Even if the full picture isn’t completely painted, go down the path that your instincts say is the way.
