Ep 23 - Two's Company..‪.‬ The DNA of Mindful Relationships

    • Relationships

•In any monogamous intimate relationship there are often people and things that can interfere in the strong connection between two people and become the third 'member' of the relationship. Instead of a strong bond or connection the relationship is diluted by this third entity. The energy that you need to put into the us of the relationship is shared between three components instead of two. This could include:
•This 'threesome' could include:
•a friend
•a parent or family member
•a child or children
•a mobile phone
•work
•a pet
•a hobby
•the gym or exercise
•your religion
•a lover - this is seen as a betrayal. What about all the other's?
•This can start to weaken the connection as one person is turning away from the relationship and turning towards someone or something else.
•It only becomes problematic if one person in the relationship starts feeling unhappy, distant, unloved or cared for.

What can we do about it?

•Bring up your concern about it in a gentle way


•Look at ways to create more connection and intimacy away from the other entity.


•Set up some rules
