Status Flower 4.1

Leaving – Mutual

An opportunity to choose love instead of hurt

Intro

The most painful aspect of the relationship cycle offers the chance to astound ourselves with the depth of compassion and love we can show when it is least expected.

Repair

It may not be too late. Recent international conflicts and seemingly insurmountable challenges, involving millions of people, have been peacefully resolved. Trapped by entrenched beliefs, pain, hurt and faulty perspectives, we may not be aware of the opportunities for repair, healing and reconciliation.

Willingness

Two men diametrically opposed politically, over decades of murder and bloodshed, (Ian Paisley & Martin McGuinness) formed a deep respect, fondness and friendship in our lifetime, through the Northern Ireland Peace Process. If there is still a spark of love and a willingness to reignite your relationship, consider tools and methods of reconciliation.

Peace

If you are beyond that point, use the tools below to re-connect you to compassion, forgiveness and understanding for yourself and your partner, so you can go in peace and not pieces.

Brené Brown

The courage to be vulnerable

Profile Image Of Brene Brown

Brené Brown has spent 16 years studying courage, vulnerability, empathy, and shame; each one a key element in relationship dynamics.

Brene’s work has helped to crystallise this research field on human behaviour, helping us to more easily apply her insights towards our own emotional development and to deal more compassionately with others. A research professor at the University of Houston, she is the author of four #1 New York Times bestsellers – Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness and The Gifts of Imperfection.

Brené’s 2010 TEDx Houston talk ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ went viral and is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world with over 33 million views. This was followed by her TED2012 Talk “Listening to shame” with 9 million views. Brené believes that vulnerability – the willingness to be “all in” even when you know it can mean failing and hurting – is brave and is the single most accurate measure of courage. To love and be loved fully takes risks. The courage to be vulnerable is key to intimate connection and an improved quality of love.

Her book ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’ will prove an excellent addition to your relationship toolbox.
