Manely Firm - January 2020

Look Forward to a Br ighter Future L ook B ack for E xperience Many people take the new year as a chance to discuss ways to eat healthier and how they’ll lose weight, but for some people, this is a time when they reevaluate their life decisions and relationships and look at how they’re going to spend this next year. Often, this means taking a look at where they are in life right now, looking back over the past year, and determining what they want. Many solutions could mean looking for ways to improve interpersonal relationships and getting the necessary tools to make that happen. These tools could be anything from couples counseling to personal growth goals. Our team highly recommends the Gottman Institute located in Seattle. They have fantastic programs in couples counseling and teach couples how to apply the proper tools for fundamental changes and cognitive thinking. Communication is absolutely crucial in a relationship, but it’s often approached in unhealthy ways. When people engage in conversation, they should be aware of whether they’re trying to facilitate, cooperate, or compete in the relationship. When you find yourself competing in a relationship, it will lead to contempt. You want to be conscious of that, which is what the Gottman Institute helps people understand. However, it’s equally crucial for you to determine if your relationship is worth working on. If you look back over 2019 and don’t like what you see, look forward to a brighter life and future. There are healthier ways to live. You can be far happier than you are right now or have been in the last few years. As you start the new year, take stock of your life. Make the changes you need to make to ensure you can live the life you want. You don’t have to do it alone. The Manely Firm helps thousands of people navigate these rocky waters.
