Relationships are never a smooth journey. And they are not an easy journey for strong, successful people either.
If you know someone who fits the above-mentioned description, you probably think that their life runs smoothly. But, this isn’t always the case.
I’ve seen independent, confident, tough, successful people get into relationships that are messy, stressful, and toxic. And I’ve often wondered why this is so. I mean, shouldn’t these people be wise enough to know better?
There’s probably a myriad of reasons as to why strong and successful people tend to attract difficult, draining relationships, but it seems that such people feel so comfortable in their own skin and they’re so good at handling their personal problems as well as the emotional baggage they’re carrying around from the past that it often takes a relationship to force them out of their comfort zone.
One more possible reason as to why tough, successful people tend to attract unhealthy, troubled relationships is that such people want to embark on additional journeys of self-discovery and self-improvement.
They want to gain a more profound insight into themselves and their purpose so that they can identify and overcome their insecurities and fears and continue to grow, both at a personal and professional level.
So, if you’re struggling in your love life and if you’re wondering why this is so when you appear to have everything else running smoothly in your life, this could be a sign that you fit into the category of confident, tough, and successful people.
Here are the three kinds of relationships that strong people are attracted to:
1. Healing relationships.
A lot of tough, confident, spiritually awakened people tend to be healers as well. They possess the strength to handle the pain and problems of people who need emotional support and attention. Therefore, they often attract individuals who need healing.
The healing in this kind of relationship usually benefits both partners. However, the tougher person has to be extremely careful not to get trapped in a one-sided relationship in which he/she is going to be the only one doing the healing.
And if they start feeling exhausted from all the healing they do, this may be a sign that they need to stop investing all of their time and energy in healing their partner for a while and take better care of themselves instead.
2. Soulmate relationships.
Soulmates are people who enter your life to challenge you intellectually and inspire you to work on and change yourself in order to grow. Working on a soulmate relationship requires a lot of energy and hard work. It’s stressful, draining, and rewarding all at the same time.
It is exactly in this kind of relationship that strong, successful people discover their true selves. Because when they’re romantically involved with someone, their weaknesses and imperfection are highlighted.
A soulmate relationship does not necessarily last forever, but in regard to growth, the effects of the relationship surely do.
3. Karmic relationships.
Karmic relationships are probably the most intense and challenging relationships that strong and successful people tend to attract since they overflow with karma from their past.
In this type of relationship, both partners help each other heal old wounds, purify their souls, and get rid of the shackles of their past.
What Tough And Successful People Can Do In Difficult Relationships
1. Every challenge we’re faced with in our relationships is only a small part of the journey which is supposed to make us grow and become the best version of ourselves.
Therefore, embracing the difficult relationships and trying to enjoy every moment they spend with their partner as much as they can is the best thing strong people can do in order to discover their true selves and grow.
2. They need to remember that even the toughest, most confident, and most successful people have the right to be vulnerable and emotional.
3. They need to turn their challenging relationships into valuable lessons and learn from them. They need to let these experiences teach them how genuine, deep, and happy relationships work.
4. They need to understand that practicing self-care and self-love should always be their number one priority. Because only when they truly love themselves will they be able to love and take good care of their partner and nurture the relationship.
5. They need to always be themselves. Because if their partner is the right person for them, they’ll accept and cherish them exactly the way they are.
