28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….
Week 15: Magically Heal Your Relationships
“If you have a difficult or broken relationship, are suffering from a broken heart, or hold any resentment or blame toward another person for anything, you can change it through gratitude. Gratitude will magically improve any difficult relationship, whether that person is a husband or wife, brother or sister, son or daughter, partner, boss, business client, work colleague, mother- or father-in-law, parent, friend or neighbor.
When we are faced with a difficult relationship or a challenging situation in a relationship, in almost all cases, we’re not in the least bit grateful for the other person. Instead, we’re busy blaming the other person for the problems we have with them, and that means we don’t have a shred of gratitude. Blame is never going to make a relationship better, and it’s never going to make your life better. In fact, the more you blame, the worse the relationship gets, and the worse your life gets.
Whether it’s a current relationship or a past relationship, if you harbor bad feelings toward another person, practicing gratitude will eliminate those feelings. Why would you want to remove your bad feelings about another person?
Bad feelings about another person burn your life, but gratitude will eliminate them!
For example, if you have an ex-partner who is connected to you through your children, and the relationship isn’t good, look at your children’s faces and realize that they wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for your ex-partner. Your children’s lives are one of the most precious gifts you have. Look at your children, and give thanks to your ex-partner for their lives every single day! As well as bringing peace and harmony to the relationship, through your example you will be teaching your children the greatest tool for their life – gratitude.”Rhonda Byrne, The Magic
I never realized that I had so many relationships that need healing. Although most of them I do not have any contact with anymore. When someone hurt me, I cut them out of my life as if they never even existed.
If you have a complicated or broken relationship, have a broken heart, or hold any resentment or blame toward another person for anything, you can change it through gratitude.
We all play the blame game. We only see the bad in the other person, and that means we don’t have a shred of gratitude for them. The more we blame, the worse the relationship gets. Bad feelings about another person burn your life, but gratitude will eliminate them.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” ~ Guatama Buddha
This week choose a few difficult, problematic, or broken relationships that you would like to improve. It does not matter if the person is still in your life, or if it’s a past relationship and the person is no longer in your life.
Sit down and make a written list of ten things you’re grateful for about the person. Think back to when the relationship was still great. Name, I’m grateful for__what?___.
By the time you’ve finished your gratitude list, you should feel much better about the person and the relationship.
The ultimate point is that you don’t have any more bad feelings towards the person anymore. If you need to you can repeat this activity till you have no more bad feelings towards the person.
Do this with all your difficult, problematic, or broken relationships.
