Have you ever wondered if an investment will be profitable over time with the ups and downs of an unsteady market? Making wise investment requires intentional understanding of the environment and discipline in riding out occasional instability. Much like financial investment, relational investment can be risky with no guaranteed payout. It, too, is vulnerable, particularly after discovery of betrayal that can leave the emotional bank account in deficit. Given this fluctuating environment, how do you know if it’s wise to re-invest?
Whether in financial or relational investment, growth takes understanding, effort and time. After substantial loss, recovery requires discipline in resistance to the impulse of complete withdrawal after disruption. It requires resilience through commitment and hope that the investment can recover over time. If you are not feeling invested currently, consider communicating new terms with your partner, checking in daily to see where adjustments can be made for maximum growth.
