As an expert hypnotherapist, I have the unique opportunity to help people understand and change the course of their lives. I get to meet interesting people from all walks of life and hear their stories.
Some of them are so inspiring that they stay with me for weeks. I am always amazed by the human capacity for resilience in adversity.
In the coming weeks, I will share some of the most inspirational stories I have heard. I hope they will provide you with hope and courage in your journey.
I want to begin by pointing out that we all have different ways of living our lives and try to adjust to other people’s situations. However, this can often lead to problems, as we try to force ourselves into a mold that isn’t necessarily comfortable for us.
I have seen this first hand as a hypnotherapist. I have recently worked with two lady clients who had difficulty adjusting to other people’s way of life.
We concluded that they didn’t have a problem, per se; instead, the problem was that they were trying to fit into a mold that didn’t suit them. In each case, the client had a good job and a stable relationship, but she struggled because she couldn’t be her true self.
When two people are in a relationship, they must share common interests. However, it is also essential to respect each other’s differences.
For example, one of the lady clients loves to spend time with her female friends, chatting and laughing. However, her partner enjoys leisure time with his male friends, talking about sports and other interests.
While she feels left out when he is with his friends, she should respect his right to have his interests. There is nothing wrong with their relationship. They only have different interests, but should respect each other’s differences.
A successful relationship requires understanding, space, and adjustments from both partners. Let me use this extreme example of a family where the husband is interested in cars and motorbikes while the wife may be spiritual and enjoy meditating.
The couple may not share the same interests, but if they respect each other’s differences, they can find a balance that works for them. Ideally, to have a successful relationship, they will need to try and understand each other’s interests. It is also vital that they give each other the space to pursue their interests.
A few adjustments may need to be made along the way, but as long as mutual understanding exists, a successful relationship is possible. I believe that it is essential for everyone to find their unique way of life and not try to conform to someone else’s idea of what is right or wrong.
We are all different, and what works for one person may not work for another. The key is to find what works for you and to live your life in a way that is authentic to yourself. Also, it may help to remember that no one is perfect, and everyone has their quirks and idiosyncrasies.
