It’s time!  Time to take a breath and invite your partner to do a “Relationship Check-In”.  As a single person, it is time for you to check in re your current relationship values.

3 unique relationship months have passed, unique in that you have spent this much time either with a partner, time apart from a beloved or as a single person online.

Covid-19 and the consequent lockdown set you off into shock and uncertainty, which continues to this day.  This rocking of your internal system created imbalance in your relationship to your self and to your intimate relationships.

I urge you to capitalize on this trauma.  I encourage you to use the trauma to grow, not only in yourself as a person but in your intimate relationship/s.  Many of you may have increased your daily practice of exercise, journaling, walking in nature, yoga, eating healthy food and deepening social connections.  No doubt this has given you a set of new values (more about this in my email on Wednesday 17th June 2020). Those new individual values will impact on your relationship values.

So come on, take stock of where your relationship is right now.  Invite your partner to join you in this conversation.  Prepare yourself through breath work so you enter with a quiet brain.

Be aware that this intimate conversation may trigger defensiveness, anger, criticism.  It may also generate an open-hearted conversation.  Please treat each other with flexibility,  kindness, and respect.
