Reciprocal relationships are where it's at!
Most of us do not consciously think about reciprocity in our friendships and intimate relationships and for the most part, that is okay. Generally, when things are going well, we feel good, and there is mutual benefit and interaction there may not be a need to think about how balanced the relationship feels.
Yet, there are signs when things get out of balance. Resentment, anger, frustration are a few of those feelings. And it's easy to brush them aside in order to maintain the relationship. But that isn't helpful to either party.
A healthy relationship is one in which each person feels seen, heard, and there is a mutual give and take.
Since we're coming up on the end of the year, now might be a good time to take inventory of your relationships. Are there some that need a little "house cleaning" and to tidy up how things are unfolding? Maybe there are some relationships that no longer serve you and now is a good time to release and let go of that. And, there might be some new relationships brewing!
Be clear on what you need and want and clearly communicate those needs. Be with those that lift you up and light you up! Be seen for who you are!
