Relationships That Work Aren’t Power Plays

Relationships That Work Aren't Power Plays Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman  by Linda Franklin

Do we really need relationship geniuses  telling us what makes love last?  Most of the time it comes down to common sense, but I will admit, lots of us lack that quality when it comes to our personal relationships. Too often it becomes a power play, a tug of war of who’s right and who’s wrong.

If you put a relationship in a win/lose situation, it will be you who loses. The question is: Is what you’re doing working or not working?

The quality of a relationship is a function of the extent to which it is built.  Is there a solid underlying friendship that meets the needs of the two people involved?

There is no right or wrong way to fix a relationship. Find your own way  – the one that  works. But recognize when it’s not working and be honest when it needs fixing.

Falling in love is not the same thing as being in love. Embrace the change and know that it takes work.

You don’t fix things by fixing your partner. You don’t necessarily solve problems. You learn how to manage them.

Communicate. Make sure your sentences have verbs. Remember that only 7 percent of communication is verbal. Actions and non-verbal communication speak much louder.

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says, ”there’s no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
