  2. I find useful to practice positive feelings.

    One of them is to consider ourselves and our partner more important that things.

    Many times, in a family’s life, money, our stuff, the children’s toy which is not at the right place, become more important than us.

    It’s great to remind ourselves that all that stuff is less important then us.

    Sometimes, let’s practice leaving toys where they are instead of putting them at their place, and let’s soil the seats of our new car on purpose.

    We are more than our stuff.

    If our stuff becomes more important than us, we begin to relate to each other as if being less important than stuff. Our relationship can only suffer for that.

    What a wonderful post Dia and as always, fabulous tips you’ve shared.

    I guess I’m not the best person to comment on this since I’ve been divorced for over 22 years now. But when I am in a relationship, communication is huge to me. Also keeping things light, remembering why we got together in the first place and to understand to not sweat the small stuff.

    Just some of the experiences I’ve had in this area Dia. Of course as we all area aware at times, even these fabulous tips aren’t enough.

    Thank you for sharing this and hope others can learn from you.
