Uncertainty in Relationships | Tony Robbins
You can feel 100% sure about what you need from a relationship, but the thing is, a relationship involves two people. That’s why there will always be uncertainty in relationships, because you can’t always predict the needs and desires of someone else. You can’t control how your partner will react to stressful situations or how their emotions will change from day to day, just like they can’t understand or anticipate your needs at all times.
Living with uncertainty in relationships can be challenging, but in the end, it can actually make you stronger. That is, if you’re willing to fight off the urge to build walls. Uncertainty causes some people to pull away from their partner, ultimately creating tension and distance in the relationship. You have to fight off the urge to hide when you feel it coming on – instead of pulling away, give in to the unknown and accept uncertainty.
It is only when you give up feeling like you need control over every aspect of your relationship that you can experience true joy. Choose trust and faith in times of uncertainty and you’ll never falter. To do this, you have to be present with your partner and learn to communicate openly. This will ultimately strengthen your relationship and do away with some of the uncertainty you regularly deal with.
Lastly, always believe that your partner has the best intentions. If you fully love this person and want them to know they can trust you, why wouldn’t you assume the same of your partner? Commit to giving without getting. Give love, give appreciation and give joy to your partner without expecting anything in return. Once you start to receive joy from seeing your partner living a fulfilled, loved existence, thoughts of uncertainty will banish and your relationship will flourish.
