Relationships can cause up pain, they can bring us joy- but they're also one of life's greatest teachers. Sometimes we need to go through the pain of realizing what we don't want to fully know and appreciate what we want in a relationship. .
That's why it's so important to do the work between relationships so you give yourself time to reflect on the lessons learned. It's easy to keep having the same kind of unhealthy relationship over and over again if you're not giving yourself the space to learn.
