If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.

BAROMETERS OF RELATIONSHIP HEALTH
At the core of the troubles that exist intra-personally (within yourself) and interpersonally (in your relationship with others) lie three areas I have already discussed as methods for creating a relationship. These three methods—accepting feelings, telling the truth, and keeping your agreements—can also serve as a barometer for what and how much is wrong in a relationship. I urge you to ask the following questions as you begin to explore your relationships and chart a course toward conscious living within them:
- What truth is not being spoken here?
- What feelings are not being experienced or accepted here?
- What agreements have been broken here?
Try looking first within yourself to find answers to these questions.
