In the case of your relationship, maybe your differences are so severe that the impact on you and your significant other just too toxic to justify perpetuating the cycle. Sometimes it is best to call it quits and concede that at this point in time you are simply unable to break the deadlock. Sometimes parting ways is the best solution.
So here’s my challenge to Congress. Break the deadlock or call it a day. Create something new or make room for those that can. Be willing to lose for the sake of the bigger win. We’re counting on you.
For those who believe your relationship is like Congress, I offer the same challenge. I also offer help. Sometimes it is absolutely necessary to bring in an outsider to help break the deadlock. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. You don’t need to struggle alone. This may be just the right time to heal past wounds and create something new. Take advantage of the opportunity receive the support and guidance you deserve.
