Balance between GIVING and RECEIVING in a relationship
By my opinion, the sacrifice is not necessary in any helthy relationship, if we sacrifice, we start to treat ourselves as victims of our relationship(s) and feel that way. I prefer to call this topic "balance between giving and receiving".
What I know by my life experience,there is always balance beetween these two forces, but we have to move focus towards higher perspective, not to keep an eye on one particular relationship only. Our whole life tends to balance itself, all the time... If we give "too much" good energy to one person, we gain something in another situation, from somebody completely else. This is natural process, Yin-Yang balance.
When we start to feel that balance within ourselves, our relationships can improve on much more harmonically way. Anyhow, every one of us has to work on developing self-respect, self-love and life-wisdom. None of us is born emotionally perfect, so problems are just lessons to learn and gain life-experience. But - every situation can be transformed.
Whatever we think or feel about our relationships, we materialize in our lifes. Good or bad, happiness or disappointment. It is our choice, it is our creation. And we can always change our attitudes and way we think, and wish and create much higher quality in our relationships. Just by power of our intention and a lot of positive thinking and feeling... (more about this subject is in my hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/ideas-dreams-materialization) But what I know for sure: whatever I think or feel about my boyfriend, good or bad, he immediately starts to manifest, behaving exactly on the way I am seeing him ... The same happens with everyone else and everything else...So, my life depens of quality of my energies only...
I wish to all of us blessed and nice relationships...
