We’ll have salt and pepper chicken wings, a portion of spare ribs, beef in black bean sauce, and two portions of egg fried rice. Oh, and some prawn crackers.
Ahh. . . Chinese takeaway.
The perfect food whatever the weather, but particularly when you’re comforting a friend who recently ended their marriage. Lots of things can contribute to the breakdown of a relationship. The pain it causes means that at first It’s much easier to lay blame elsewhere, sometimes at the estranged partner or outside influences like ones career or money. The last thing we want to do is look at ourselves for the part we played. Did we enable or subconsciously promote undesirable behaviour in our partner? The disconnect between what we want and what believe we are worth is very prevalent for a lot of people. We just aren’t consciously aware of how our behaviour and thought patterns effect us and the person we want to love us.
People act in the way you subconsciously want them to act.
What does this mean? Well, do you have a friend, family member or work colleague who always ends up with the same ‘sort’ of person? You can warn them, advise them, laugh with them, but nothing seems to stop the inevitable slide into another unfulfilled relationship. What does this suggest? That the person is actively looking to be hurt, unloved or not appreciated. . . Not for a minute!! However if we subconsciously believe that this is what we are worth then we frame our choices within that belief system. We chase love, affection, and quality time with someone because we believe we aren’t worthy, so we over compensate. This can mean the other person becomes used to things being easy for them, so they stop investing in the relationship because they don’t have to. The very things that we want we drive away. The old adage the more you give the more they take is very true.
We can’t control what others think, and we can’t take responsibility for somebody else’s happiness. However what we can do is understand what are value’s are. What are our red lines? I can’t promise anyone happiness or love in their relationships, but I do know this – the more you love you, the more you know your value, the more will you be pleasantly surprised by who comes into your life.
Now, pass me the chopsticks.
