Do you ever find yourself having the same argument over and over again with your partner? Does it feel like he or she is just being ridiculous and over-reacting? If so, congratulations! You and your partner have just encountered what happens when two icebergs collide.
Here at The Lighthouse, we use the analogy of an iceberg to describe our conscious and unconscious; the tip of the iceberg is what we are aware of, and the largest part (below the surface) is our unconscious. Often, when we find ourselves having the same old arguments over and over with our partner, it’s because our icebergs have collided. If you want to learn how to navigate the sea of relationships, and get a better look at your iceberg, contact us at The Lighthouse. We’d love to help!
