Let’s Talk About Relationships…

An Excerpt from Douglas Reichwein’sI Love You Today Because”

Relationship is complex. It is a skill and it has to be learned. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t have it perfectly yet. If you set your intention to improve, you can. At any age you can become more aware, more conscious of collecting data about the people around you. You can be more aware of collecting data about the number one person around you.

You can become more aware of collecting data about the person that is the you inside you. You can be more skillful in communicating what is inside you with the number one person around you. There’s a soul part to it, which is really about knowing yourself. And there’s a skill part of it, which is really about listening, processing, and expressing back a communication that is what you really mean.

According to Robert Waldinger, Director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, in terms of life success one thing surpasses all the rest:

"The clearest message we get from this 75-year study is this:

Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period."
