When Docked Ships, LLC coaches couples we can clearly see that they love one another (or at least liked each other at one point). And all the couples tend to have ONE thing in common. They were under the misunderstanding that LOVE would sustain their connection.
The main issue is that they operated under the true belief that LOVE is divine. And it is! LOVE covers human error. It forgives and continues on whether hurt inflicted was non-intentional and negligent (or even malicious).
But the MOST important aspect of LOVE is RARELY considered. LOVE also defers the choice of growth & development to an individual level.
Therefore, relationships (IN ANY FORM OF CONNECTION>>>FOR THAT MATTER) can only be sustained (in a healthy manner) by implementing shared values of mutual respect for spiritual principles.
