Joining

When a partner is upset about something that we are going through, they are joining with us.  It doesn’t mean that either of us is necessarily walking around in a pity party, however it does mean that we are empathizing regarding the facts of the situation and the impact these may be having in our lives.

And it’s nice to know that we aren’t alone in the challenges that present themselves in our lives.  Life happens and my experience is that things always work out somehow.  Having the companionship of someone who loves us and is invested in our success is a lovely gift.  A treasure.

It’s also lovely to be on the joining end, when we empathize with our partner and let them know that we value them and want the best for them.  It may seem like a small thing, but it’s one of the many ways that we can be of service to another person.  And who better than the most important people in our lives.  I’m learning how to acknowledge my partner through both the uplifting, happy times and the challenging, sad times.  It’s an honor.

Affirmation for the Day – ” I am learning to empathize. ”
