It’s pretty easy to FALL in love.
It’s considerably harder to STAND in love.
And, simply seeing that distinction is a pretty big deal.
Otherwise you might fall into the trap I used to fall into—thinking that any little hiccup in a relationship was a sign that something was wrong with the relationship.
That fixed-mindset orientation applied to relationships is super toxic.
MUCH healthier to ditch the naive optimism, go growth mindset on it and K N O W (!!!) that all relationships face their inevitable ups and downs.
The question in those post-falling-in-love-honeymoon phase moments is not “What’s wrong with our relationship?” but “How can I Optimize my ability to show up powerfully in this relationship?”
Standing in love.
Let’s get really good at it.
Take a moment to reflect on the difference between falling in and STANDING in love.
Feel the power of the latter.
