Kaasajal on märgata soovi paljusid tavaetiketi reegleid lihtsustada. See on üks aja märke, kuna kõige tugevamalt mõjutavad etiketti elutempo, üleilmastumine ning jätkuvalt teisenevad ühiskondlikud ja olmelised tingimused. Palju sellest, mis veel 20. sajandil oli täiesti tavapärane, tundub praegu võõras. Sellegipoolest on endiselt au sees tavaetiketi parimad traditsioonid, mis, tõsi küll, võivad olla vormilt mõnevõrra muutunud. Sundimatus, loomulikkus, viisakus, mõõdu- ja taktitunne ning mis peamine, heatahtlik suhtumine kaasinimestesse toimivad aga alati ja igas elusituatsioonis – isegi siis, kui te kõiki etiketireegleid peensusteni ei tunne.
An incisive “couple’s workshop in a book” for navigating the challenges of relationships and unlocking lasting love Linda Carroll’s first book, Love Cycles , describes the five stages of intimate relationships in detail, illuminating the behaviors associated with each stage and strategies for successfully navigating them. This companion workbook, Love Skills , is a practical guide to creating and maintaining a loving relationship. Exercises, activities, self-assessments, and other concrete tools allow readers to understand where they are in their relationship. Carroll addresses such thorny issues as the loss of sexual energy, why what once seemed endearing is now annoying, and the many ways that family history and personality type can wreak havoc in relationships. Her well-researched practices help keep love alive in the midst of seemingly intractable differences, and specific, effective solutions to couples’ most common struggles provide a clear map for moving forward. Most important, Carroll’s couple-tested techniques allow readers to deal with conflict without losing connection, and show that conflict, when navigated properly, can lead to renewed closeness and unprecedented connection.
Any relationship can work. In The Relationship Revolution , Owen Williams calls on couples to stop working in their relationship and start working on it. When couples work in their relationship, they compete against each other. They justify themselves, play the blame game, and compare each other's level of effort. It's not long before they say, «A relationship that takes this much work isn't worth saving.» When couples work on their relationship, they co-create the relationship they both dream of. Their focus is on the needs of the relationship. Instead of fixating on their individual shortcomings, they concentrate on the potential of what they can build together. Then, as they discover what their relationship needs, each individual is naturally drawn to what keeps them from offering their best to the relationship. Before long the two – individually and together – evaluate their beliefs about themselves and the world. While relatively untroubled relationships can easily fall apart under the first approach, relationships marked by infidelity, loss, betrayal, or long-term disconnection can make the journey back to health under the second. Welcome to the revolution.
