Create a Happy Relationship – the 3-legged stool
One of the most common statements I hear many singles say is: If I were in a relationship, then I’d be happy. That is cart-before-the-horse thinking. And here’s why I say that:
In my eyes, all relationships are like a 3-legged stool:
You and all that you bring to the experience operate as one of the legs.
The second leg is the other person.
The third leg is the relationship itself – the very act of creating a partnership creates a new entity which we call “relationship”. A relationship is as much outside of each of you as it is within, or part of, each of you. Together you and your partner/friend/relative/co-worker define and co-create it.
As you regard your co-created relationship as this 3-legged stool, you’ll see that for the stool to be sturdy, each leg needs to be sturdy. If you’re wobbly, the whole thing is going to be wobbly. Being in a relationship will not cause you to be strong. If anything, the relationship is going to test you. There’s really no getting around it.
So a successful stool or a happy relationship is best supported by people who realize that both parties need to contribute equally.
“How?” you ask?
Here then is your blueprint to create a happy relationship:
- Increase your level of self-awareness, awareness of your partner and awareness of the relationship itself
- Prioritize the relationship in attitude, behavior and action
- Develop and hone a shared vision of your ideal relationship
- Improve your level of proficiency with core relationship competencies
