But in my research and work with those struggling to make sense of relationships gone wrong (along with my own relationship misses), I’ve learned that in order for relationships to thrive, each person needs to bring with them a willingness to reveal themselves and be vulnerable, a desire to grow and learn together, and a sense of humor… because let’s be honest, we all say and do stupid things every now and then.
