As you can see: the differences when a person and their partner are healing together and feels fully supported versus when a person feels alone in their healing process.

This is critical for people in relationships to understanding because when a person is doing their healing work they will go through a lot of changes mentally and emotionally. If both people in the relationship are doing their healing work and are in it together some of the changes will be expected and understood.

However, if one person is doing their healing work and their partner is not in it with them and has no time to acknowledge their partner’s healing process. It tends to be a very different outcome for each individual in the relationship and each individual. The person doing their healing work and the partner not doing their healing work can create distance and disconnect versus if you are in the healing process together it can create closeness and connection.

Understanding togetherness vs. separation tends to be important for both partners. There is always room for changes and adjustments to be made if there is a separation. Both people have to be invested in making the adjustments.

Taking the time to work on oneself and not project onto others can be a hard adjustment to make. It can also be an adjustment that is MORE THAN WORTH IT!
