Five Key Relationships

By March 19, 2008 2 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot about our key relationships as I prepare for our couples retreat this weekend.  Obviously we are emphasizing the relationship with a spouse for this event, but there are five key relationships in our life – they are: 

  1. Your Relationship With Your Creator
  2. Your Relationship With Yourself
  3. Your Relationship With Your Family
    1. Spouse
    2. Children
    3. Extended Family
  4. Your Relationship With Other People
  5. Your Relationship With Things 

I have found that the happiest people I know have these relationships prioritized and in this order.  Getting them out of order tends to throw things out of whack.  Get them lined up and start realizing the happiness you were meant to enjoy.

    Simple, short and yet very, very true.
    The times when I have been out of balance with this list have been a disaster!

    A number of years ago I wrote a thought on this subject you may like, “A man cannot have an honest relationship with anyone, including himself, until he has an honest relationship with his creator”. I have tried to make that the core of my work, helping others find that relationship in their lives and when they do the changes and growth are amazing.
