Things shift. Relationships certainly evolve with time, particularly as we age. As parents age, spouses get older, and adult children spread their wings, women 50 and beyond have to deal with a variety of new interpersonal dynamics.

Psychologists say that the key factors that determines whether a relationship becomes stronger or more fraught with time include need, ability, desire, availability, willingness, and commitment. Nearly every relationship in life is built with these foundational blocks.

We will be able to more clearly analyze why some of our relationships are more fulfilling and enjoyable than others once we understand the significance of these factors in all of our relationships. Additionally, we'll understand more clearly why our relationships fail. Simply by reviewing the six essential factors, we will be able to identify what is missing and out of balance in our relationships.

This is because we tend to focus on what the other person said or did wrong.  As devastating as the breakup itself might be, judging, criticizing, and placing blame on someone else for what went wrong in the relationship can be as bad. Instead of trying to convince ourselves that we would be much happier without that person in our life, focusing on our mistakes and areas for improvement might help us move forward. Even if the other person is to blame for the painful breakup of our relationship. 

Relationships are an adventuresome assignments for ultimate personal development and soul growth.  Building and maintaining healthy relationships, will help us live a more full, satisfying, and meaningful life.
