Some simple questions to ask about relationships:

Do you want to become more like this person? Chances are, you will.

Do you feel deeply peaceful with the person? Does it feel deeply right?

Do you need the other person to change to be happy? *

Are you aligned in your deepest values and what you want in life?

Does the relationship nurture you?

Does the relationship support you in following your heart, your truth?

And, of course, this is not true for everyone and in all cases. Sometimes, we find ourselves in a relationship that looks different, and that’s OK too. It may still be rewarding. We may still grow from it. And no relationship is forever.

* If you do, if you make it into a project of needing the other person to change, it may be unpleasant for both.
