How do you integrate new information?
Esther Perel states...
“For [erotically intelligent couples], love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning. They know that they have years in which to deepen their connection, to experiment, to regress, and even to fail. They see their relationship as something alive and ongoing, not a fait accompli. It’s a story that they are writing together, one with many chapters, and neither partner knows how it will end. There’s always a place they haven’t gone yet, always something about the other still to be discovered.”
There are thousands of books and a bazillion pieces of advice available to us. There is no doubt that this is wisdom. BUT how do you integrate this in to your life? Did you know this or is it new to you? What style of communication would you use to bring this to your relationship? Can you do this alone or do you need help? When does it stop being just an aspiration and what makes it a GOAL?
Love to hear your thoughts.
