Health In Relationships: Evaluation
It is important to evaluate the first 3 components ongoing to determine if the relationship is functioning in a healthy way or if the form has become outdated. Use meditation and contemplation to reach a deeper understanding.
Purpose, Structure, and Implementation were the first 3 steps in the process of creating more health in our relationships. At the 4th or neutral step we can pause to evaluate what we have come to understand as true during the initial process before continuing.
Ask questions, gather information. The 4th step is an internal one and works well with writing and other processes which are self reflective. Sometimes it is necessary to return to the first step, identifying the purpose of the relationship, if this reflective process brings up more questions.
Questions: What have I learned so far?
