Whole Person Magazine Advice Column: July 2016

Question: Why do our partners promise to change, but then don't?

Answer: When we love another we want to create the best environment for the relationship to flourish.  If we are able to compromise for the better good, we will.  However, if what we are promising conflicts with our core self, the changes will not be able to sustain themselves and both partners will end up disappointed.  

               To the partner promising to change:  It's best to be honest with yourself and your partner regarding your limitations and boundaries in a relationship.  What are you willing to compromise non and what are you capable of?  If you offer to change something you don't believe in or is part of your core self, the changes will not sustain themselves.  By being honest, you are respecting yourself and your partner.  If the changes are not within your limitations and boundaries perhaps the relationship needs reevaluation.  

              To the partner asking for change:  It's best to identify if your expectations are idealistic or realistic.  Are you asking your partner to make changes that are too different from his/her belief systems and core self?  If so, you will end up disappointed when he/she can't sustain the changes.  Sometimes a good match is not a good enough match in terms of getting what you truly need in a relationship.

               On the other hand, it's possibly your expectations are idealistic and it's time to reevaluate and identify your relationship needs.  What do you need from a partner and what is an absolute deal breaker?  The remaining items belong in the gray area.  You may be surprised how much that opens up opportunities to finding a great match.
