Ready for a Relationship Reboot: Clue #4
You’re willing to see your differences differently
Even in the most “perfect” relationships, there are differences because we all look out at the world completely differently.
To quote Rag’n’Bone Man, “I’m only human after all. You’re only human after all.”
We each have had different experiences that have shaped how we think and how we see events and interactions.
And that’s the human experience.
Somehow most of us tend to forget that when we fall in love and the “honeymoon” period wears off.
We start wanting to change the other person to the way we do things and the way we think.
In order for a “relationship reboot” to start happening, there has to be even the slightest willingness to see that views other than yours are valid.
Now that doesn’t mean you have to agree with how the other person sees the world but it does mean approaching differences as an explorer instead of as adversaries.

And when you see something new and different, healthy changes can happen pretty easily.

Of course, a relationship is two people and both contribute to keeping the irritating and frustrating dynamics going.
But relationship changes really only take one person to start seeing something new and different–and then acting from that place.
Over the past few days, we’ve given you our ideas about how to tell if you’re ready for a relationship reboot…
And it really comes down to having an openness and willingness to have something new and different.
Often times, people want to stay stuck in a difficult scenario because if feels familiar–even though they say they want something different.
If you can honestly say you’re tired of being stuck and you’re ready for a change, the good news is that it’s possible.
