In my last article, we read that reciprocity is very important in relationships. We also saw that we have the tendency, in our relationships, to take an automatic position that results in lack of reciprocity.
Lack of reciprocity leads to frustration, dissatisfaction, conflict… and unhappiness.
How can we prevent this? By being attentive to 3 types of behavior or attitude we produce, normally without realizing what they are telling us: reciprocity is missing!
Reciprocity is a very important ingredient in relationships.
Think about that: “Relationships are exquisitely sensitive to balance in their early stages, and a great way to ruin things is either to give too much (you seem perhaps a bit desperate) or too little (you seem cold and rejecting). Rather, relationships grow best by balanced give and take, especially of gifts, favors, attention, and self disclosure.” *
I made it! I kept my objective on going swimming 4 times a week for one month!
Thanks to all of you for your support and your sharing! That gave me a lot of motivation and energy 🙂
As you remember, we are discussing the topic about maintaining our intentions so we can realize a change in our perception about ourselves.
During this process we can learn a lot about what our difficulties are: too much alone? Lack of discipline? Lack of flexibility?
“Since I go to Michelle and I’m experiencing the Grinberg Method, I learned how much I try to control everything and everybody around me. Our goal was then to help me to let go of the controller and be able to accept the pain that is connected with that.
Michelle helped me to develop my relationship with my mum where both of us are happy with each other and able to respect each other again in our choices and lifestyles. I’m also more able to respect myself and my emotions. I’m very grateful for the relation with Michelle: she was able to help me to get over my insecurities and be more happy with who I am.
I love our fights, I love our laughing together. I never fell more free then in my sessions with Michelle and, most important, I can feel a change inside me.” Eva, Psychologist.
In the first article of 2017, we spoke about the New Year’s resolutions and the need to change our perception about ourselves
I hope you are doing well with your New Year’s Resolutions and I would like to share with you my personal challenge. I trust that it will support your own.
“When I first met Michelle I was completely empty, disconnected from my feelings and at the edge of the break. By her words and work, she helped me to clarify my patterns, to identify my blockages and to untie the threads of my life. I learned that I could say “no”, that I don’t have to be automatically worried about others if I do not feel like or if they are not doing me good. I left, after 8 sessions, serene, imperturbable calm and happy. Thank you!” Charlyne, communications specialist.
