Relational blind spots? Get help!
Today we are focusing on an expert article that is featured on www.cacheconnections.com titled, "Don’t Let Blind Spots Blindside Your Relationships" by Georgia Shaffer. We met Georgia, author of "How Not to Date a Loser" at a SAM (single adult ministry) conference in Daytona, Florida in 2008. She is a licensed psychologist and certified life coach - and a very sweet lady!
This article takes a peek at some blind spots that you might not realize you have, such as not seeing negative qualities because of your focus on your connection's appearance, finances or status. Georgia recommends that you find people that you trust, people that you "do life with" to give you honest feedback about your current relationship. It might not be easy to do, and you may not like what you hear, but you have to trust that your advisers have your best interests at heart.
How many of us could see a train wreck coming when it comes to our friends' relationships? What if they had been humble enough to ask your advice? Let's hold each other up in this tough business of finding a soul mate. Proverbs 19:20 tells us to "Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise."
