The importance of sex should never be underestimated. For every living creature on this planet, it’s what makes the world go round.
Enjoying a healthy relationship to sex falls back on the same core principle. Connection. We are who we’re attracted to and for most of us, we yearn for a partner that is compatible with our core needs. Yet it’s all too easy to become tongue-tied when it comes to relationships. We tell ourselves we’re looking for X and in next to no time we’ve settled for Y.
Many of us fall in love with the idea of someone, fixating over the promise that this idea invites in our imagination. As these relationships exit the honeymoon period into something more serious, many couples find themselves drawing metaphorical lines between them. They grow to resent their partners choices and instead of addressing the elephant in the room, they pick fights over everyday problems.
It’s all too easy to use sex as a tool to deny yourself the right to creative bliss. By creating chaos in your romantic life, the journey to inner fulfillment is all the more challenging. Much like your career, it’s so important to take your time with romantic relationships.
The closer we come to finding a genuine connection with someone that understands and shares our values the greater our chances of success. There’s no need to rush. Having the patience to really process your feelings and listen to your inner voice goes a long way to fostering healthy choices.
