Do You Stick To Your Relationship Dealbreakers?


Do You Stick To Your Relationship Dealbreakers?
Know your deal breakers and learn how to follow through with them.

6. Draw your lines. Unless you draw a line in the sand, your partner will not have the opportunity to respond, change and transform. Therefore, the relationship you share will not have the opportunity to respond, change, and transform. There are no guarantees that the relationship can be saved, but without honoring your dealbreakers, I promise you that the relationship is doomed. Many people rise to the occasion. Many relationships become stronger and more intimate.

7. Know when to move on. And finally, if the relationship cannot be saved, then you will have moved on with more dignity, personal power and a commitment to yourself. Remember, your most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. Don't ever sacrifice that — you live with you forever!

If you need more personalized help in identifying and honoring deal breakers, please don't hesitate to contact me. You don't need to struggle alone. Take advantage of the opportunity receive the support and guidance you deserve.
