You can do a lot to help a relationship in trouble, provided you have the heart and the will. It may involve your ability to compromise and to forgive, but once you’ve got over believing that it’s not your job to make the sacrifices, changes in the relationship will follow. Now, this doesn’t mean a friendship or partnership that has clearly done its day should be salvaged, but I am recommending you work through a difficult passage. Likewise any situation in which it seems other people are blocking the way forward, walking a mile in their shoes could help you see things rather differently. And when you see a situation from another perspective it’s amazing how things start to change.
