EFT Tapping for Relationship with Others


Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you will understand what little chance you have in changing others.
Jacob Braude

Relationships are complex. It is easy to be alone, live alone, do one’s thing. It is another to live with someone. Relationships are a dance. In relationships, the possibility exists that our toes may be stepped on as we dance.

When your toes are stepped on, what do you do? Blame the other person that they were out of step and trampled your toes? Do you call yourself clumsy and take all the blame even though it may not be? Do you get angry and tell the other person they are incompetent? Do you suffer in silence and pretend that everything is okay? Do you light-heartedly laugh and say, “It might be wise of us to practice that one.” Or, “Oops, that was my fault.”

There is no right or wrong manner in which to handle someone stepping on our toes. The manner in which we do respond, however, is a reflection of where we are emotionally.

Relationships are wonderful and exciting avenues of self-discovery. The choice is ours. Self-discovery, or blame and competition. We can learn as much through love and joy as we can from pain, struggle, and suffering. Relationships are more enjoyable if the other person in the relationship is on a course of self-discovery as well.
