Are you looking around at your relationships and realizing no matter how hard you work no one is happy? In fact, it feels more like everyone is angry? It may feel like all the pressure is on you; somehow you’re the one who has to fix it all. Or perhaps you fear that you’re the only one who can. Life is overwhelming, and all you want is to make everyone happy again.  

You’re looking for a relief. You’re looking for joy. You’re looking for peace. You want everyone you love to have a life that they love! And you’re allowed to want it for yourself too. Have you ever heard the phrase, “work smarter, not harder”? That’s kind of where all of this is going. You work harder and harder and are not getting the results you want. Stop working harder. 

Working smarter in relationships often means you have to let the people you love figure their own life out. You don’t have the power to “make” someone else happy. You do have the power to BE happy. Working smarter in our relationships often means we need better boundaries, clear expectations and strong negotiation skills. This sounds like something for the workplace, and it’s necessary at home with our nearest and dearest too. Not sure where to start, call Owens Counseling today!
