How open are you and your partner to change and growth?
The Family Institute’s March Tip of the Month defines “the growth mindset”–or how couples can remember that people are always changing and evolving.
From this month’s tip:
Judging by the words we use, we often view the rough patches in our relationship through a harsh and critical lens: “we’ve hit the skids” or “we’ve fallen on bad times.” How easy it is to scare ourselves into thinking that our partnership is doomed, or that we’re stuck living forever with so much unhappiness. Moments of such pessimism are probably familiar to most of us.
Read the whole Tip of the Month and get some ideas as to how you can avoid feelings of pessimism and permanence in your relationship, and embrace growth and evolution instead.
