The next step

You can end conflict, heal hurt, and restore love in any relationship


If you have read the articles, you know that love is never enough to have a relationship be great. The divorce courts are full of people who love each other. To have a relationship be great, you need to feel loved. It’s the experience of love that makes the difference.

Normally, we make the other person responsible for the presence or absence of love. Then we treat the person according to how that person treats us, but when we do this, we lose our power. We give it to the other person. Then it’s the other person that determines what happens, not us.

The next step

The key to being effective in relationships is to take 100% responsibility for the presence or absence of love. This gives you the power to determine what will happen in your relationship. When you blame the other person, you may be telling the truth, but you are also throwing your power away.

We throw our power away because some nerve is being triggered. Our circumstances have triggered the childhood hurt of feeling worthless, not good enough, not worth loving, a failure, or some other form of feeling not okay. It’s not the truth that we are this way, it’s just a suppressed emotion, but it’s an emotion that we will do almost anything to avoid feeling.

When this emotion gets triggered, we feel threatened and become defensive. In an automatic, subconscious attempt to avoid this treat, we fight, resist, hang on and withdraw. We destroy love and fuel the cycle of conflict.

It only takes one person to heal a relationship

Fortunately, this destructive cycle can be removed. This is because a cycle of conflict requires two people to exist. It’s like a tennis volley. As soon as someone refuses to return the serve, the volley is over.

The key to ending the volley is simple. Heal your hurt and remove your resistance towards the other person. When you do this, the negativity stops and you become very effective. You can then interact out of the love instead of the upset. When you interact out of the love, you create more love. When you interact out of the upset, you create more upset.

Read the book, How to Heal a Painful Relationship

If both of you work to restore the love, it will make your life a lot easier, but it’s not necessary. Even if the other person is unwilling to do anything, there is a lot you can do. When you change how you relate to the other person, you change how that person responds to you.
