Whether you want to admit it, or not, our lives revolve around relationships. Work, family, and friends, are the lifeblood of our society. A relationship is defined by Wikipedia as:
"An interpersonal relationship is a strong, deep, or close association/acquaintance between two or more people that may range in duration from brief to enduring. This association may be based on inference, love, solidarity, regular business interactions, or some other type of social commitment. Interpersonal relationships are formed in the context of social, cultural and other influences. The context can vary from family or kinship relations, friendship, marriage, relations with associates, work, clubs, neighborhoods, and places of worship. They may be regulated by law, custom, or mutual agreement, and are the basis of social groups and society as a whole."
It has been said that we choose our family before we are born. Energetically, we choose the people to have in our lives, based on what we need to learn. In "Many Lives, Many Masters," Dr. Brian Weiss talks about this, and how it relates to the entire cycle of our life, as well as how it factors into our subconscious, from past lives, if you embrace that school of thought. In the work I do at my Intuitive Learning Center, we learn how to recognize and release these patterns. There are many variables when it comes to our choices. Why do some people end up rich, and others, poor? This is a result of choices, conscious or unconscious, and I have seen many people turn their lives around by simply becoming conscious of making the choices that will lead to what they really want to manifest in their lives.
When you find yourself in relationships that are the same, over and over, you need to ask yourself, "Who is the common denominator in this pattern?" YOU are the one who is attracting this, and it is up to YOU to change yourself, and your choices have to reflect that. If you find yourself constantly being annoyed and angered by other people, ask yourself what you are not seeing. It is not the other people, it is within you. Some people have a hard time setting boundaries for themselves. I have seen it time and time again, someone fails to set a boundary, and then, they are suddenly feeling "taken advantage of." If they had set the boundary and held it, no one would BE ABLE to take advantage of them. There would be no drama or confusion.
In times when you really do need to move out of a relationship, it is simply because you have grown out of it. It may manifest as the other person "doing something" to you, but there is no need to place blame or use anger to move out of the relationship. No one is "wrong" or "bad" when the relationship no longer serves you. Setting loving boundaries is a very easy way to move out of the energy of it, but acknowledging with gratitude, all that you have learned from the interaction. If you find that most of your relationships end with a lot of drama and anger, you need to work on your boundaries.
Learn to have the best relationship you can with YOURSELF, and then you can really start to create relationships with others, that serves you, and them, in your highest good and purpose.
