“The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” – Plato
Building worthwhile relationships with family, friends and work colleagues usually requires time, commitment and communication. The rewards for these efforts are self-evident and numerous; solid relationships are the foundation for a more contented, less stressful life.
A little planning or self-evaluation can go a long way when life throws up a potential problem. It is important to remain positive when you encounter one of these roadblocks. Maybe you’ve recently suffered a family bereavement, or have come to the end of a long-term relationship. If you’re doing it tough, try to focus on solutions to help you move forward. Start simple and take small steps to help make the changes you want in your life.
