My relationship is loving and caring.
We share our thoughts and feelings. I confide in my partner. I allow myself to be vulnerable. I communicate honestly and openly.
We are transparent. I let my partner know what I am doing and who I spend time with.
We listen to each other. I care about my partner’s welfare. I try to understand their point of view. I let go of judgements and assumptions. I ask clarifying questions when I am unsure of what they are saying.
We make major decisions together. I value my partner’s input. I am willing to compromise to make us both happy. We evaluate our options and search for mutually satisfactory solutions.
We keep our promises. I strive to make my actions match my words. I follow through when I agree to go to office parties and when it is my turn to do the laundry.
We resolve conflicts promptly and peacefully. I accept responsibility for my part in any situation. We talk through our differences and move on.
We have realistic expectations. I know that any relationship has its ups and downs. I forgive my partner when they hurt my feelings or forget an important date. I apologize when I am in the wrong.
Today, I trust my partner to love and accept me for who I am and help me in reaching our common goals. We treat each other with respect and honor our commitments. We work together as a team. I feel safe and comfortable with my partner.
