The way toward emotional safety, intimacy, and joy begins again with one's partner when we learn how to identify, de-escalate, and assess what ails our relationship. As we uncover ingrained problematic relational patterns, we can look deeper and find the underlying emotions that are often driving our difficulties without our knowledge. We can follow those feelings into the past and find their source in our family of origin attachment experiences and release long-held conflicts in a way that not only liberates us individually but also frees us to transform our present relationship in the ways we long for.
“Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Austrian Poet and Novelist
