3. Whether you have worked on yourself
It’s important to work on yourself and take responsibility for half of the dynamic of any relationship whether it is over or not. As the old adage says – “It takes two to Tango”, which is true. A relationship dynamic is just like a dance. There is a push and pull and if you want to change the direction of where you are going, someone will need to take control of where you are heading. Fortunately you have no control over anyone else other than yourself.
Taking responsibility is not about judging or blaming yourself, instead it involves looking at your part and seeing what needs to change, so you can evolve and grow to keep what works and what doesn’t.
