In this stage you become two people who have chosen to be a team moving out into the world. You move beyond the relationship and your relationship becomes a gift to the world.
We struggle and we fight. We are annoyed by things that we couldn’t ever imagine to get annoyed by. But with every struggle and every fight, we grow. We are aware of the steps that we still need to make, and we are committed. We know we can achieve huge goals once the dust has settled and once we’re ready to move out into the world as the team we are. We still have many lessons to learn, and we have a life time together to learn them. We know, that there’s no one else we’d want to do it with.
You start a project together, something intended to contribute to the world in some way. You start planning bigger things for the future, not just for yourself, but for possible future generations as well. If you didn’t do so already in the previous stage, you’ll most likely want to expand your family and share all you’ve learned in life with your children.
You’ve entered the most mature stage of your relationship
You always retain the lessons you both have learned in the earlier stages, and are more and more aware of the concept of giving and taking. It’s important to be able to respect the other and to accept that person as an individual. If not, you’ll keep coming back in the Flee or fight stage until you learn how to. It’s up to you to deepen and strengthen your love instead of hurting it.
Have you ever wondered why you and your partner keep fighting over the same things over and over again? Do you feel on edge or uncomfortable in your being together? I’d like to help you get past the struggles you’re experiencing. If you need any advice, please get in touch with me using the contact form or any form of social media to find out where these feelings come from and what you can do to make things right.
