Why You Need To Accept Your Partner’s Differences
I was recently asked, “Lisa, what do you do when you feel you are not on the same page as your partner when it comes to goals, intention and drive?”
Now, I don’t use this word often, but relationships are very INTERESTING.
You see sometimes when we are in a relationship, we want our partner to BE like us and THINK like us.
But the truth is – you are not looking to be in a relationship with your TWIN! You want to find a MATCH who compliments you. To me, a match means “How do we find our differences and allow them to dance together?”
You want to be in a relationship with someone who provides balance and harmony – who is your anchor. Someone who is moving in the same direction as you, but maybe at a different pace. And they don’t have to be on the same page, as long as they are reading from the same book. Sometimes being on different pages actually expands your perspective on things.
I used to expect someone else to adopt my dream and share the same drive as me. But now I have learned that I can have someone in my life who has their OWN goals and dreams. They don’t have to adopt mine, but they can celebrate my wins and cheerlead for me.
So please watch this episode and ask yourself, “What brings GRACE and EASE to the relationship? When I realized that every time I wanted my partner to think like me and share my drive, they failed me. But every time I allowed them to just do themselves, it was a whole lot better.
I love reading your comments and seeing you engage with each other. What did you get out of this episode? What was your #BOL (breakthrough out loud)? What was your #AHA moment?
This is your home, and we are your community. And you and I are in a relationship too — and I think we are a pretty great match. I believe in you, and I love you. I truly do.
