Less than a week later he told me he was moving out.
I was bummed to hear this. I mean, really bummed. This guy is awesome. This gal is a sweetheart. There were times they were really good together. They have a kid together. But life got in the way and it looks like the final chapter is being penned right now.
But what if they had these 3 questions before? What if they were put into practice a year ago? How will these 3 questions change their future relationships? How will they change yours?
Question 1: what are you doing to care for yourself?
Question 2: what are you doing to care for the other person?
Question 3: what are you doing to care for the relationship?
I thought I was pretty clever with these 3 questions. They shoot right to the heart of the matter but an honest evaluation opens the door to so much more.
