If you want to know how to improve your relationships you’re not alone. The best predictor of overall happiness in life is the quality of your relationships. So it’s time to take stock of the people in your life, and decide which relationships you cherish and which need to go (toxic relationships equal toxic life).
All relationships take work – whether it’s with a friend, partner, co-worker, or family member. And no where else in life do emotions get more triggered than in your relationships with other people. If you cannot regulate your emotions, you cannot have positive relationships.
It’s key to be aware of the dynamics that are developing in any relationship. Then you’re able to correct them when you go off course—and we all go off course at some point. When you’re truly aware of what you’re feeling, you can choose to respond in a wise mind way that’s relationship building, not relationship damaging.
