How To Be In A Balanced, Authentic Relationship
A lot of what makes a healthy relationship is two healthy individuals, and finding the middle ground (coming to the table, as I call it). The middle ground is where the needs of both individuals and the relationship as the Third Entity can be taken care of. (please click on the Third Entity page for more information).
Being in a balanced, authentic relationship takes work. This work does not have to be miserable by any means, but it does take effort and attention to create the relationship you really want. We have to become humble in our approach. It is often our ego and defenses that create friction. When we are defensive, we lose perspective and our ability to be present. Because of this, we forget that our partner is our lover and best friend as opposed to the enemy we make them out to be.
