Getting Out of the Blame Game
It seems the instant defence we lurch to when we are attacked – we respond, at least from within, by defence of counter-attack. It’s instinctive. Sometimes we only realise what we’ve done well after the event. Their blame of us begets our blame of them. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Getting out of the cycle of blaming people when they have let us down is not as hard as it looks and we derive peace as a result. The thing is any time we get sucked into the blame game it backfires. We lose our peace.

When you are in a relationship, the baggage affects not just you, it is no longer just your own. The key to fix a marriage haunted by the past is to manage the baggage effectively.
The Joy In Relational Presence
In this day and age we tend to live more independent lives than ever. Technology is at least part of the explanation; convenience also. There are myriads of social and human-nature factors at play. But our independence, which is supposed to deliver us more freedom, has actually delivered us more isolation. We may feel more disconnected nowadays – besides the ability to catch up with people over social media – than ever. More independence and more freedom has not necessarily equated to more joy.
