I got into meditation around five years ago. In fact, it was meditation that helped me realize and gracefully accept that the person I was with at the time was not right for me. I felt this incredibly warm, loving sensation when I meditated—like a nourishing light—and I somehow understood that I did not feel that way in my relationship, but I should. Meditating helped me out of a bad relationship, and to find my partner who I now live with and am over-the-moon happy with! Naturally, I wanted to introduce him to the powers of meditation, too. My boyfriend struggles with anxiety, and I knew it would be very good for him. Funny enough, when he first tried it, he complained he was, “Too anxious to meditate.” Ha. It’s a catch 22. But he finally tried it, and it changed everything for both of us. Here is how meditating can improve your relationship.
We don’t sweat the little stuff
The fact that one of us always waits a little too long to clean our dishes, or that painting one insisted on hanging that the other doesn’t like…these issues seem so trivial after meditation. So we just don’t argue about them as much.
